The RAC – Pothole ridden local roads named as number one concern for drivers in their latest Report on Motoring 2020, closely followed by drivers using handheld phones.
What damage can potholes do to your car?
According to the RAC’s tyre partner, ATS Euromaster, hitting a pothole can cause a number of wheel and tyre problems.
Initial impact on a vehicle can cause buckled wheels, cracks, lumps in the tyre, cracked alloys and it can knock out the tracking and wheel balancing.
Reports have found that a third of all recorded vehicle damage is as a result of potholes.
In more severe cases, it could lead to drivers losing control of their vehicles and being involved in an accident.
