Pothole "Swallows" Jeep in Sofia
An alarming story on Sofia News Agency. I can safely say that I never saw a hole that big on a road. I did however discover an uncovered drain at least five feet deep, and can state with authority that the road maintainance crews in Sliven have a relaxed attitude towards informing the public of their work, and that roads only get closed when the hot tarmac is actually being laid.

Meanwhile, in Scotland…

A few weeks ago the road out the back of Helensburgh got resurfaced. The trouble was the warning signs and speed limit had been posted at least two weeks before. So everyone was ignoring them.

I'm not sure which is worse.
