Voting season has officially ended for Metro Times' annual Best of Detroit poll, but because it's still pothole season, we've decided to add one last category: The best (worst) pothole in metro Detroit.

Dear readers, we need your help. While construction crews have started doing their thing, time is of the essence. Let's remember the hell that was driving in the winter of 2018 properly. If you see a gnarly pothole, snap a pic of it (safely... look out for traffic!) and send it (along with its approximate location) to [email protected]. Deadline to submit is Friday, April 20.

Winners will be featured in our Best of Detroit issue, due on newsstands April 25. Stay tuned for details on our annual Best of Detroit party.
