How do you deal with potholes?
February 12, 2014
The obvious answer to this question would be to avoid them, but for the sake of this blog, lets just say that you cant. The dreaded pothole is something everyone tries to avoid while driving but unfortunately this is not always possible. Here are some tips you might find helpful when its clear that the pothole is unavoidable.
1. Do not speed up! The faster you go, the more damage the pothole can do to your vehicle.
2. Watch out for puddles. Puddles can hide potentially dangerous potholes. Approach them with extreme caution.
3. Have control of your steering wheel. There can be another set of problems if you have a loose grip on the wheel while driving over a pothole.
4. Do not brake into one. Slow down prior to contact with the pothole, then glide slowly over it. Slamming on the brakes can cause more damage.
