North Carolina roads may be clear of ice and snow, but drivers still might hit trouble spots. It's the beginning of pothole season. Department of Transportation spokesman Steve Abbott says drivers should watch out for potholes. But he says the cold weather actually has minimized damage.
"Because we haven't had the thaw and freeze and thaw and freeze of last year potholes are not as bad as they were last year."
Abbott says we can expect a few more winter storms. Drivers on North Carolina state roads can report potholes to their county maintenance Office. Road crews are prepared to respond within 48 hours.
