(UNDATED) - Potholes have literally turned some roads into obstacle courses for Indiana drivers.

INDOT says this winter has been relentless when it comes to addressing potholes.

Spokesman Nathan Riggs says the state has already spent $2.9 million this winter filling them. He says the state has also used close to seven thousand tons of cold mixed asphalt and logged more than 8100 employee hours.

INDOT is responsible for potholes on state and U.S. roadways. Riggs says about 40% of the pothole tweet reports they've gotten have been for roads managed by localities and not INDOT.

Brownsburg Resident Bob Overman says he has seen potholes everywhere. He says he lost a tire and rim when he hit one and had it not been for his great mechanic, he might have ended up shelling out $400 on repairs.

Overman says he understands that localities are likely having a tough time keeping up with pothole repairs given the relentless cold and snow.
