Edmonton is having one of the worst seasons for potholes in years, and taxi drivers are feeling the effects.

Mahbub Addus says his back hurts after a day on the road.

"Each and every day when we go home, we need a massage," he says.

Addus is originally from Ethiopia. He’s never seen roads as bad as they are in Edmonton.

"Even if I drive on a gravel road, I don't feel the pain that I feel in Edmonton," he said.
