One of the things I learn about visiting New York last year was that streets there are not great as expected. The ones in Kuwait are relatively much better. In New York, cars kept on jumping instantly due to the street conditions. I think this is mainly due to snow damaging the streets because it snows a lot there. And many people complain about this.
I remember when the rain damaged many parts of the streets in Kuwait this winter and the previous one, causing many potholes. This was mainly blamed on the quality of the materials used. They are now talking about a solution to prevent this from happening again.
