What are potholes?
A pothole is a small to large depression in the pavement caused by water seeping into the ground beneath and eroding the roadway. Potholes form when the pavement is constantly wet or when there are freeze/thaw cycles that cause the pavement to shift. As vehicles drive over these areas, the weight of the traffic wears away at the pavement, causing it to crumble. Potholes can range in size from a few inches to several feet wide and deep, and can damage tires, rims, and suspension components on your vehicle if you hit them hard enough. Potholes are also a trip hazard for pedestrians.
Benefits of repairing potholes
Patching potholes as soon as they are discovered is crucial to maintaining a safe and functional roadway. Potholes form when water seeps into cracks in the pavement and freezes, expanding and weakening the asphalt. As vehicles drive over these weakened areas, the pavement breaks away, forming a pothole.
Potholes can cause serious damage to your vehicle if left unrepaired. They can also pose a safety hazard, as they can cause drivers to swerve into oncoming traffic or other obstacles. In addition, potholes can damage tires, suspension systems, and alignment.
Repairing potholes quickly can help to prevent further damage to your roadway and can save you money in the long run. Filling potholes also helps to maintain a smooth driving surface, which can improve driver satisfaction and safety.

How do potholes form?
Potholes form when water seeps into cracks in the pavement, freezes, and expands. The expanding ice creates additional stress on the pavement, causing it to break. As more water seeps into the cracks and freezes, the pothole grows larger.
Dangers of driving over a pothole
Potholes can be extremely dangerous for drivers, especially if they are not aware of them. Driving over a pothole can damage your tires, suspension, and even your engine. It is important to be aware of potholes and take care when driving over them.
