EDISON - Hundreds of people across the Garden State tell News 12 New Jersey potholes are a serious problem this year.

Drivers are reporting that potholes are opening up on both major roads and neighborhood streets. Experts say potholes are bad this time of year because the pavement keeps breaking up after extreme temperature changes.

Many drivers took to the News 12 New Jersey Facebook and Twitter pages to share their ordeals with damage after slamming into potholes.

"Pothole on 80 in the Paterson area blew out my tire and bent the rim," said Alex Len.

There are several ways drivers can report potholes across the state.
