Alright, alright. We know that potholes aren’t everyone’s favorite thing, but if you are one of millions who’s driving a car, this is something you’ll have to deal with. We don’t make the rules.
And, we’ve already seen plenty of them starting to pop up across the QC as the snow starts to melt.
So, besides stating the obvious of AVOIDING POTHOLES, here’s some extra preventative measures you can take!
- Make sure your tires are aired up. Over and under inflated tires are most prone to damage.
- Maintain a following distance that allows you time to react, either to the car in front of you or to the approaching pothole.
- Apply your brakes before hitting the pothole, then release them as you roll through it. This gives your suspension the full range of motion to absorb the pothole hit.
If you run into a pothole, take your vehicle to Jacks!
One issue you might immediately notice upon hitting a pothole is that the alignment of your car may be off. As the tires hit the pothole, it will throw off the alignment and how the tires rotate. You can notice if your alignment is off based off the position of your steering wheel when you drive.
