According to Advance Auto Parts, potholes cost US drivers approximately $3 billion every year. So Advance Auto Parts is partnering with Monroe and MOOG to conduct the most insane, pothole-pounding experiment the world has ever seen. What if instead of trying to avoid potholes, one brave soul attempted to hit every pothole he saw? John Gardner and others are setting out to learn everything there is to learn about potholes over five days on the streets of Chicago.
