Few things are as annoying to drivers as a giant pothole right in the middle of the road. They seem to pop up right in the most difficult spots to avoid, and seem to stay there indefinitely without ever being filled.

Damages Caused by Potholes

People are often surprised by the extent of damage that can be caused by hitting a pothole at a moderate to high speed. Remember that vehicles are comprised of many systems working together to make it go, and any number of these systems could suffer from running over a large pothole. Some of the most common areas to receive damage from going over potholes are:

  • Tires
  • Suspension
  • Shocks
  • Steering
  • Alignment

One of the most rampant issues caused by potholes is tire damage, which can lead to blowouts at high speeds that may also cause devastating collisions. Road conditions have everything to do with how your car runs, and it is the city government’s responsibility to maintain those road conditions.
