Spring is just around the corner! A great indicator that winter is being left behind is the orange “Bump” signs posted along the roads. If it isn’t a frost heave it is a pot hole. The daily commutes resembles more of an off road course at the X Games than your regular drive to work. The warmer days cause the snow to melt while the nights bring us black ice. Driving this time of year can be stressful to say the least. Having great insurance for your vehicle can make driving in March a bit less stressful.
Frost heaves are caused by ice forming beneath the surface of the soil. The pavement cracks leading to potholes. Hitting a frost heave can be a bit like driving the General Lee except you don’t seem to land the way Bo and Luke did. It is easy to lose control of your vehicle when it is in the air. Slamming into a pothole can cause blown tires. It is always a good idea to maintain a safe distance between you and car ahead to prevent a serious accident. Be sure to give yourself extra time when traveling, even to work.
Your vehicles can take a beating due to potholes and frost heaves. Unfortunately if the damage is due to a frost heave or pothole, highway departments and towns will not reimburse you. Filing a claim can be just as stressful as the driving on Maine roads in March, but it doesn’t have to be! When you choose a Trusted Choice agency, you are choosing the best insurance agency!
