Potholes are a frequent safety hazard on many roads though they may appear to be relatively harmless. However, they have the potential to cause serious damage to a person’s car and could lead to wrecks that inflict severe injuries upon those who are involved in them. Accidents of this kind are preventable through diligent road maintenance and fall under the responsibility of the local municipality.
