Hitting Potholes when driving
When you notice a pothole on the road you are traveling on, make sure to slow down as you get near it. This will help prevent further damage as you go over it. If you hit a pothole at a fast speed, it can increase the chance of damage to the tires. Also remember to try and avoid a direct hit to the pothole. You will want to straddle it or go around it as much as possible. If the pothole is deep, you also run the risk of the vehicle getting stuck or having an immediate breakdown.
