Make it a point to be on the lookout for potholes. Know your surroundings before you swerve to avoid them. If a pothole cannot be avoided, reduce speed, being sure to check the rear view mirror before any abrupt braking. Hitting a pothole at higher speeds greatly increases the chance of damage to tires, wheels and suspension components. Depending on the impact of the hit and what part of your car is damaged, hitting a pothole can do serious damage to your wallet. Give us a call to discuss how your auto policy may cover the damage.
