Potholes pose problems for drivers

(Continued)

Harvey Brow, service writer for Dave’s Auto Repair in Goshen, tells customers to not text and keep their eyes on the road to avoid potholes.

“Keep your eyes open and put your phone down,” Brow said. “I know. I personally hit one and bent both rims.”

He says the shop hasn’t seen many repairs that are related to pothole damage — yet.

“We could see a dramatic influx in the next couple weeks,” Brow said.

What should drivers do if they think they have damage after hitting a pothole?

“Pull over in a safe place to look. If a tire is leaking air, you can hear it,” Brow said. “If you can safely change a tire, do it or call Davto get it towed to our place or take it to a trusted mechanic to get it done right.”
