POTHOLE SEASON DRIVING TIPS
- Safety is the biggest concern, if you hit a pothole and it damages your car, move out of the flow of traffic before calling for assistance.
- Maintain the proper air pressure in your tires.
- Slow down if you see a pothole in front of you. The faster you hit it, the greater the impact and potential for damage. Avoid braking directly over a pothole. It can actually cause more damage.
- If you’re able to avoid a pothole by changing lanes, check all sides prior to the lane change.
- If you have to drive over a pothole, firmly grip the steering wheel to avoid losing control.
- A puddle in the middle of a road could be a pothole in disguise. Avoid driving through it if possible.
- When driving at night, choose well-lit routes so you can see the surface in front of you.
- Reoccurring loss of tire air pressure or steering wheel vibration may signal vehicle damage due to potholes.
- If you encounter a pothole in Longmeadow, please call 413-567-3400 or report on the web using: yourgov.cartegraph.com
