CANTON, Ohio (WHBC) – Auto repair business owners may be the only people smiling about all the potholes in the area.
Stark County Safe Communities say drivers are seeing broken shock absorbers, damaged tires and tire rims as well as dealing with alignment issues.
They say you want to slow down, but do not apply the brakes right over the pothole, as that can mean greater damage.
And, keep your wheels straight ahead, to avoid further damage.
AAA says potholes cost U.S drivers $3 billion annually.
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation says potholes can add $335 to your annual car repair bill.
