As the seasons change so does the way asphalt (and/or the earth’s surface) interacts with the earth. As temperatures rise and fall – especially in drastic fashion, as they’re known to do – the pavement laid atop the earth’s soil expands and contracts.
Sometimes, in the wake of this, cracks begin to form on the surface, be it soil, or asphalt. And, as we know, cracks can lead to bigger issues. For the case of this conversation, we’re talking about potholes. You know the feeling of driving through one on your daily commute. You try to avoid them, but at some point in your life, you and your automobile will fall victim to its wrath.
Potholes are dangerous. They’re damaging, and, in extreme cases, they can cause serious distress and further anguish in the form of serious accidents and broken down modes of transport (or sprained ankles if you hit one in blind stride…)
Potential ill effects of potholes:
- Bodily harm
- Flat tires
- Warped rims
- Damaged undercarriage
- Compromised suspension
- Out of whack alignment
There’s a mind-boggling statistic floating around that suggests that 33,000 people perish due to accidents stemming from potholes annually, and produce nearly $3 billion in annual expenditures for vehicle operators collectively. In short, potholes are much more than nuisances. Potholes are costly and need to be remedied correctly at the outset to avoid further problems and expanded damages.
