"This sort of thing doesn happen in Scandinavia or France, where they mend the roads properly," he said. to account for the wet and cold. He says additives such as cement and lime are compulsory in the top layer of asphalt on Swedish roads, and that there are even stricter limits on air bubbles within the asphalt.In fairness, Thomas Bennert, a research professor at Rutgers University Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation, says it hard to compare Stockholm with New York."You can go to parts of Scandinavia where I sure they don have to really do anything, because the roads are not really traveled as heavily," he says. "You do need that pounding of the traffic to really hit it."Regardless of what they doing elsewhere, what really matters is what happening right here at home, says Galehouse. He says Americans pay about $21 a month on average in state and federal road taxes a fraction of what they pay for cable television or a cell phone.

The Department of Transportation had filled just under 57,000 by this same time in 2013.New Englanders, famous for their meteorological stoicism, are reeling from what Boston Public Works Commissioner Mike Dennehy calls a "pothole eruption.""We filled our 6,000th pothole this morning since Jan. 1," Dennehy said Tuesday. Last year comparable figure was about 1,600.The pace was even too much for the city vaunted "Potzilla" a massive truck that keeps the fill material hot en route to worksites. An electrical failure last weekend caused the heating core and hydraulic augers to quit, forcing workers to shovel up to 2 tons of dried asphalt from the machine bowels before the beast could hit the roads again, Dennehy says.In Philadelphia, they not even attempting to keep count."We just trying to keep up as best we can," says Gene Blaum, a spokesman for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.Since Dec. 1, PennDOT workers have applied more than 2,000 tons of patching material in the five counties around the City of Brotherly Love, says Blaum.Normally, major pothole trouble comes in late February or early March.
