The best way to avoid potholes is to look ahead in the road while driving to scout out these annoying hazards.
When you spot a pothole in the road, do your best to safely steer around the obstruction. If you can’t avoid a pothole, reduce your speed as you approach the chuckhole and hit it straight on. Hitting the pothole at a slower speed may help you avoid damage to your vehicle.
Another helpful tip is to keep your tires properly inflated. Your tires are on the front line of the pothole battle – they are the first to absorb the impact of a pothole so keeping them inflated at the manufacturer’s recommended PSI and making sure they have sufficient tread may help you avoid costly car repairs.
A final tip is to avoid driving through puddles and standing water. Potholes can lurk beneath the water, just waiting for you to hit them. Remember, you can’t avoid obstructions that you can’t see.
