CCW’S SIX TOP TIPS

FOR MINIMISING POT­HOLE DAM­AGE

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

Pro­tect your­self and your clas­sic by keep­ing an eye out for pot­holes, par­tic­u­larly in wet weather when deep pot­holes may be hid­den be­neath pud­dles. And if you find a pot­hole, report it to your lo­cal author­ity.

Slow down – strik­ing pot­holes at high speeds can cause more dam­age.

Brak­ing on a pot­hole will tilt the ve­hi­cle for­ward, plac­ing more stress on the front sus­pen­sion. If you have to drive over a pot­hole, al­low the wheel to roll freely into the hole.

If you have hit a pot­hole and sus­pect your car has sus­tained dam­age, get it checked at a garage.

Cor­rectly pres­sured tyres can act as a line of de­fence against pot­holes.
