These fluctuating temperatures mean pothole season is in full swing, and according AAA, pothole damage costs U.S. drivers more than $3 billion dollars a year.
There are a few things you can do to avoid pot holes.
1. Maintain proper air pressure in all your tires.
2. Leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you, so you can see pot holes.
3. Maintain a safe speed for weather conditions
4. When driving over more than one pothole reduce speed and hold the steering wheel firmly.
5. If possible do not brake directly over a pothole, causing the car’s weight to shift to the front and increase damage from the impact.
A broken shock or strut from hitting a pothole could alter the steering and handling of a vehicle and create dangers when driving at a high rate of speed or around corners.
If you suspect your suspension is damaged AAA recommends you have your vehicle towed to a repair facility for inspection.
You can find all the details at AAA.
