A pothole is a type of failure in an asphalt pavement, caused by the presence of water in the underlying soil structure and the presence of traffic passing over the affected area.
Edge breaks generally occur when the road shoulder is worn, there is inadequate strength of the pavement at the edge if the roadway or water enters the pavement through the shoulders.
Rutting or crocodile cracking is characterized by interconnecting or interlaced cracking in the asphalt layer resembling the hide of a crocodile. Repair as soon as possible, as advanced cases can be very costly to repair and can lead to formation of potholes or premature pavement failure.
Depressions are localized pavement surface areas with slightly lower elevations than the surrounding pavement. Depressions are very noticeable after rain when they fill with water.
Crack sealing (crack–filling) is to prevent moisture finding its way into a road pavement. It is also used to seal cracks prior to an asphalt overlay in order to prevent reflective cracking..
