CCW’S SIX TOP TIPS
FOR MINIMISING POTHOLE DAMAGE
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.
