Pothole From Hell. Ouch! My heart goes out to every one of those poor suckers that hit that hole at full speed.

You fail to see the reality of the situation, duckboy.
Realize that the car would be the LEAST of the worries there. Snapped necks from that can in almost 100% of the cases, believe it or not, cause instant death. So add funeral costs, burial fees, and years of mourning on top of the cost of repairing the vehicle itself.
Even if it were to just happen once, that's one time too many, leaving the city liable (and at least within the US (judging by the side of the road being driven on), such would be the case). Better to, like converse said, block it temporarily (there was still a perfectly usable lane; just block of ONE of the two lanes, only causing delays which are FAR from an accident, and even FURTHER from being comparable in scale to the damage being caused in the video) while a temporary cover is put in place (and most cities just lay a big ol` 3-inch thick sheet of steel over it, which costs `em very little, and it`s already within their budgets).

DuckBoy87, thanks for giving me just 2 options...do I have an 'other` choice??

Answer: Other

How about the police coming and blocking the road while a crew assembles a make-shift `cover`. Maybe reinforced sheet metal? I don`t know, I`m not a road repair guy...

I really don`t think the drivers would mind someone flagging them down saying `be careful up there mate...huge pothole, go slow`...

I don`t know about you, but I`d actually really appreciate that. But maybe you wouldn`t...maybe you just think everyone should be mean to each other...

Ok ConverseUK, how would you warn the people? Run out in front of traffic in the middle of that snowstorm and shout at people causing more of an accident than the pothole?
Or the cops, they could set up a block so people don't ramp it, but that would probably cause a bigger problem than the pothole itself.

Better a car than a person.
