Moon-like craters on a stretch of the A2 are posing a threat to life, drivers say.
Motorists were forced to dodge the potholes outside Canterbury, which have increased in size following the recent spell of freezing weather.
A video taken by the team at KentOnline's sister paper the Kentish Gazette reveals the road's shocking condition.

Emergency repairs to the left hand lane, which are expected to last for the rest the week, are now being carried out by Highways England.
Drivers who were unfortunate enough to have been stuck in the left side lane faced the risk of suffering broken suspensions and punctures as they juddered across the giant potholes.
Now, one lane will remain shut while workers repair the road surface.
Eddie Thomas, a driving instructor from Faversham, says the road is in its worst ever state.
"I have never seen it this bad before," he said.
"It's very dangerous and it can be a danger to life. If someone panics and swerves to the right then there could be an accident.
"The road is blistering. The concrete below has now come to the surface - I think a deeper repair job is needed as the A2 is one of the worst roads around here."
Other motorists have also taken to Facebook to complain of damage to their cars thanks to the potholes.
Jack Tappin, a spokesman for Highways England says the route is now being repaired.
He said: "We’ve currently got lane one of the A2 closed between the Brenley Corner Roundabout and Upper Harbledown.
"Emergency works have begun here and will ongoing through the rest of the week and will go up as far as Canterbury.
"We ask motorists for their patience while we resolve these issues."
