Potholes wreak havoc on cars, peace of mind

Posted: Updated:


Are you sick of them yet?

Spring has just begun, but with snow off the roads, there's nothing to protect you from the inevitable doom of potholes.

"You have to like slow down, or drive around them," says Tabitha Fisher. 

"If we can put things in space that don't blow up when it reaches the atmosphere, we should be able to put things on the road that can expand and contract with the weather," says Amanda Lewis.

"And they're ugly, " says Cederick Whitlock.

They're not just an eyesore, they can do some serious damage on your car.

"I've probably replaced so far this year, maybe 20 tires. Expensive tires." says mechanic Chuck Ericson. "If you're coming in contact with a pothole, and you lose control or are not paying attention, damage can happen."

Have no fear, crews are out filling in what winter left behind for us.

Just try to keep your cool in the meantime.
