More than £30,000 has been handed over by Croydon Council in compensation claims relating to car accidents caused by potholes.
It represents the highest reported figure given out by any of the London boroughs, the Croydon Guardian reports.
A spokesman for the council remarked plans are in place that will see £40 million spent on road repairs between 2010 and 2015.
"This includes helping to repair the combined damage of three consecutive winters of severe weather that has had a significant impact on the condition of Croydon's roads," he added.
The representative noted the poor weather has led to a backlog of maintenance work, despite the increase there has been in investment.
After Croydon, the next biggest payout was Hillingdon, where £19,981 was handed over.
As far back as 2010, Croydon was labelled the pothole capital of London by a cycling website because of the poor quality of its roads.
