Potholes are often characterized simply as eyesores on otherwise pristine roads. However, the reality of the situation is that potholes present a danger for motorists who are reliant on roadways to be safe and free of defects. A pothole is usually the result of natural forces, particularly rain, snow and hail, impacting road materials in such a way that a crack or hole forms. With further weather fluctuations, that crack or hole can become exaggerated and present even greater hazards. Potholes can cause car accidents in a number of ways. It is important that potholes are fixed as soon as a municipal authority can arrange for this to be done.
