Less potholes across Toronto this winter due to milder temps

TORONTO, Ont. – It was a smoother ride than usual across the city this winter.

The mild weather meant far fewer suspension rattling, rim-bending potholes.

Mayor David Miller said crews only filled about a sixth of the number of pavement craters they handled last year.

“Complaints about potholes are down significantly this year. Last year, more than 6,000 service requests were received by the city. This year that number is just over 1,000.”

On average, the city repairs 225,000 potholes a year.
