Yes it's been a problem for years here with potholes. Fortunately, I'm good friends with all of them on my usual route home so I know what to avoid. I've lost a few tires (sidewall bulges) over the years, plus one tire and rim combo completely destroyed last winter so neither would hold air. It was dark out and I couldn't swerve in time to avoid impact. Luckily not in my C8 and luckily my tire/rim warranty covered most of that fiasco. I've also complained several times and the City has reacted to repair the worst of the worst. Attached are a couple of May 2021 photos of what the road USED to look like enroute to my golf course on the edge of town:

When the City received these, it came out exceptionally quick to effect repairs. I'd driven over it a few times with my C8 and managed to straddle the high spots w/o problem. But then bad rains in May resulted in more deterioration so I bottomed out on the 6th time through and got really p#%[email protected]
@d .off so stopped on the way back, took the photos and lodged the complaint. I heard/felt a loud BANG (my spouse screamed; it was on her side) and was convinced my car was ++ damaged but unbelievably there was none. I was also amazed the locals in the area hadn't complained long ago since the City told me mine was their first notice of an issue with that one mile stretch of roadway. Oh well. But hey, Edmontonians now have 2 claims to fame: the City with the most radar enforcement in North America, plus (likely) one of the worst pot hole infestations! LOL. (No really, it's sad on both accounts...).
