Empirical double-exponential formulas are known that describe how the amount of cracks and potholes in a pavement grows with time. In this paper, we show that these formulas can be explained based on natural symmetries (invariances) -- such as invariance with respect to changing the measuring unit or invariance with respect to changing a starting point for measuring time.
