Crap You Just Hit a Pothole Now What

pothole-photography-2Know what season it is? Pothole season.

More and more this is getting worse and worse, POTHOLES seem to growing right up out of the pavement. These holes in broken pieces of pavment can cause severe damage to your vehicles suspension, wheel alignment, and drive train.

In some places around the city, it's more like driving around an obstacle course. The important thing to remember is that sometimes potholes can do a lot of damage, so it's important to be cautious and avoid them. It may mean driving a bit slower, but it is worth it in the long run.

If you hit a pothole and notice that your car seems to be veering off to the left or right, it's a sign that there is a problem. Cars just don't go out of alignment by themselves. Something has to happen to cause it, and if you hit a pothole, it's the likely culprit.

Here are some things to check should a pothole catch you by surprise.

1) Check your tires and rims for damage. (Uneven tire wear can also cause an alignment problem.)

2) Check the underside of your car for visible damage.

3) If you notice that the car isn't steering straight, have your auto repair shop check the steering and suspension before performing a wheel alignment. Sometimes these can be damaged when you hit a pothole. Car wheel alignments are completed after repairs to steering or suspension (if they are needed).

So, be careful out there. An ounce of prevention is worth a lot of dollars.

In Huntington Beach you can go here to report Pot Holes that need to be fixed Huntington Beach Street Maintenance.
