Article: Another Reason I Don't Own A Car

The long battle between NY and DC over who has the bigger pot hole problem is over. New York wins.

From Newsday:
A 20-foot-wide sinkhole swallowed a sport utility vehicle early Monday after a water main break collapsed a section of road, flooding part of a subway line and causing commuter havoc, fire officials said.

Nancy Batista, 46, whose SUV was registered to a Kissimmee, Fla., address, suffered cuts and bruises and was taken to Lutheran Medical Center for observation, said Neil Gorman, a hospital spokesman. Batista was in stable condition Monday night and was expected to be released Tuesday, he said.
Honestly, I'm not sure whether this is a good thing or not. On one hand, it's a massive hole in my home town. On the other hand, it will discourage SUV's and tourists from going to my home town. Tough call.
