How do you permanently fix potholes?
Correspondingly, what is the best way to fix potholes?
The method of pothole repair is "Toss and Go." It's a widely used, accepted method. It's also extremely low-tech. A shovel-full (or two) of cold patch is tossed into the hole. It's smoothed with the back of a shovel and a trailing truck runs over it with its tires.
Beside above, why don't they fix potholes? So they don't. One of the predominant causes of potholes is freeze thaw cycling. Water gets in cracks in pavement freezes-expands then thaws, fills in the crack freeze again expands again etc. Water finds its way into layers in the pavement, or under the pavement.

What is the main cause of potholes?
Potholes are holes in the roadway that vary in size and shape. They are caused by the expansion and contraction of ground water after the water has entered into the ground under the pavement. When water freezes, it expands. Think of when ice cubes are made.
