Season of Potholes

The Season of Pot holes is upon us!

Winter is hard on everyone and everything, yes that means on your roads and cars as well. That is why April is Car care Aware month. Its time to freshen up for the Spring. The biggest threat to your car right now is pot holes and neglect of maintenance.

Pot holes meh, am I right? They come back every spring like flowers. They are caused by water seeping into the cracks of the pavement, then freezing and thawing, and then being driven on causes the pavement to weaken and eventually give.  If you lucky your city is on them like white on rice. Either way they are a danger to your car. Alignments, Tires, Hubs, your exhaust, your under carriage and depending on how deep it is anything within its evil grasp. It can cause leaks, dents and compromise the integrity of parts and sometimes clips can come off and parts can start to drag.

 

Is there any way to avoid them?

Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee, that’s because your car can be the one to cause the road to break and your tire can be damaged. The best think you can do is be aware of any known pot holes, do not drive thru puddles that could be a pot hole with a disguise. If you must go thru one, go slow. They hate that. And report your problem to Dominio’s Paving for Pizza campaign. J/K Report it to your county. Atlantic County Report a pot hole hot line is: 877.426.7623.  If you are on a NJ state highway and have the unfortunate luck of encountering one there there is a website, you can go to and fill out a form.
