- Make sure your tires are properly inflated.
- Leave plenty of room in front of your vehicle so you can avoid potholes without getting into a crash.
- If you can't avoid a pothole, slow down before you hit it and don't brake. Braking can actually cause more damage.
- When driving over the pothole, hold the steering wheel firmly to avoid losing control.
- Use caution and drive slowly when driving over a puddle of water or through the snow because it might be hiding a particularly deep pothole.
