Aside From Repairs, What Else Can Be Done to Avoid Pothole Damage to My Vehicle?
While the first line of defense against potholes is always getting them repaired as quickly as possible, in the meantime there are other things that can help you avoid significant damage to your vehicle, such as:
- Ensure Proper Inflation of Tires: Yes, low tire pressure increases the chance of a popped tire or damage to your wheel due to potholes.
- Avoid Swerving into Traffic: Part of the reason why potholes are so dangerous is due to the fact that many drivers will try to swerve in order to avoid them… causing the potential for an accident! Be smart, check your mirrors, and don’t get into an accident just to avoid a pothole.
- Keep Your Hands on the Wheel: If you cannot avoid the pothole, try slowing down with two hands on the wheel, keeping it as straight as possible. This will help you avoid any alignment damage to your tires.
