WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Motorists are seeing an early crop of potholes on Delaware roads this winter.

The state Department of Transportation says all of its districts are reporting an increase in potholes because of temperature swings.

Crews are having a tough time keeping up because of the weather.

Potholes usually appear in late winter or early spring, but this year, a deep freeze and fast warming, coupled with lots of precipitation have brought them out early.

AAA warns snow and ice could hide deep potholes and it advises motorists to slow down to carefully roll through a pothole, instead of hitting the brakes or swerving.

DelDOT's pothole repair is report-driven so motorists should report problems for faster repairs.
