Potholes are in roads all over the place, especially right after winter. Not only are they annoying, they can damage your car if you aren’t careful.

If you’re driving on a road you know is a little worse for wear, keep your speed down and watch for potholes in the road so you can avoid them. No matter how hard you try, however, impact with a pothole is inevitable. In that case, Gene Peterson at Consumer Reports suggests you slow down as much as you can (safely), then drive straight through the pothole. If you hit it at a weird angle, or turn into the pothole as you go through it, you could damage the sidewall of your tires. Tires damaged that way can blow out and create a much more serious situation. Plus, swerving out of the way at the last second can be super dangerous. If you hit the pothole straight on and something feels off with the way your car drives, get it checked out as soon as possible. It’s also a good idea to always keep your tire pressure at the recommended levels.
