Spring is here and so are the potholes! From the roads we drive on to the parking lots we visit, they are everywhere the asphalt is. You can do your best to avoid them, but you’ll hit one eventually. According to this report from Mercury News, potholes are more prevalent after the winter season due to the harsh weather conditions. Not only are they more prevalent, but they’re also larger.

What kind of damage can a pothole cause to a person’s vehicle? According to Firestone, it goes way beyond just tires.

Tire puncture
Faster tire wear
Damage to shocks and struts
Suspension damage
Steering system misalignment
Exhaust system and engine damage

This list of possible damages can become costly to a consumer. As a business, you can’t do anything about getting the roads fixed. However, when it comes to the parking lot that your customers are using to get to your business, you’ll want to make sure these problems are taken care of. The last thing you want is to lose business because of your parking lot.
