It's Pothole Dodging Season!
Unfortunately, in most cities, hitting a pothole is inevitable. If you do hit a big pothole - one that causes car passengers to jerk forward or back - we suggest the following:
- Get your alignment checked because hitting a big pothole can cause your car to be out of alignment. A car out of alignment will accelerate your tire wear.
- Have your tires checked for any impact breaks or cuts.
- If needed, get your tires repaired or replaced.
