How to use "Rutted" in context?

There's no mistaking rusting - it's a sign of ages past, a sign of deterioration. But rust can also be a sign of life, of movement and of change. Just as rusted metal can hold its shape even after being twisted and battered, so can a rutted roadway hold up under a bus or truck. In the course of a day, a rutted roadway might fill with rain or snow, absorbing the bumps and impacts along the way. Eventually, the rutted surface will tear and crumble, giving way to a new, smoother surface.
