How to avoid potholes
AAA offers tips to avoid potholes and minimize damage.
- Beware of puddles, which often are potholes in disguise.
- Be alert and scan the road ahead for potholes.
- Increase following distance so potholes aren’t hidden by a car ahead of the driver.
- Don’t speed. Slowing down will increase the chance of avoiding a pothole and reduce potential damage from hitting one.
