rotors grooved

I have had both problems with the gouging of the rotor.
piston sticking and pea gravel
With the temps so harsh and variations of being in the elements and then in a nice warm garage the moisture begins to come into play in the brake lines
at the calipers, lack of not flushing the lines will hang up a pad.
The pea gravel the city here use for traction at intersection, curves and ect.
It's a must for safety, but the pea gravel will work it's way in between the rotor and pad.
