‘They all showed up at once’: As snow melts away, drivers forced to steer clear of potholes

The snow has nearly melted away.

But beneath the snow and ice that covered the city’s streets not that long ago, a different type of hazard was waiting to irritate drivers — potholes.

And because the snow melted quickly, potholes have seemed especially problematic this spring.

Hitting a pothole can be one of spring’s inconveniences —

Or it can be a major hit to the pocketbook: In 2019, AAA estimated that potholes would cost drivers in the U.S. about $6.4 billion in repairs and expenses.

Hitting a pothole can cause a blown tire or bent wheel rim. It also can bend lower control arms and struts.

It adds wear and tear on the suspension. Drivers might want to increase their following distance, so they have more warning of a pothole.

“Most of the potholes are on the right-hand side of the road.” Chances are you’ve already encountered a few of them. As much as you may try to, you can’t always escape them.

The state Department of Transportation says this time of year is most challenging.

It’s almost impossible not to hit some potholes this time of year, as a result tires, wheels, suspension components can be damaged/bent, have your alignment checked to prevent unnecessary tire wear and safe handling.

Contact our scheduling department to set up an appointment to have your vehicles alignment checked at 585-723-4883 or 585-723-5091.
