Here are few tips to avoid spending on a pothole
Slow down The faster you’re driving when you hit a pothole, the worse the damage is likely to be
Give some space Should the car in front of you fail to avoid a pothole, you’ll give yourself the time to react and avoid the same fate if you leave a good deal of space between you and the other driver
Prepare for puddles When you see a puddle in the middle of the road, it’s impossible to know how deep that crater will be, so be very cautious
Hold tight Potholes can cause a violent jolt to your car, so it’s very important that you have a solid grip on the steering wheel. Otherwise, your car can veer into the next lane or you can lose control entirely
Don’t brake You’ll want to avoid braking as you hit the pothole because doing so can actually cause more damage
Keep your tires full Properly inflated tires will give your car added protection from potholes
