GTPD Community Bulletin: How To Report A Pothole In Gloucester Township

Potholes are created when moisture seeps into the pavement, freezing, expanding, and then thawing occurs. This weakens the pavement. Traffic loosens the pavement even more, and it eventually crumbles and pops out.

Tips for driving over potholes:

  • Maintain full air pressure in all tires to give as much cushion as possible between the pothole and the rim of the tire.
  • Before swerving around potholes be sure to check surrounding traffic.
  • Beware of standing water that may conceal a deep pothole.
  • If the pothole cannot be avoided, slow down. Hitting a pothole at high speed increases the chance of damage to tires, wheels, shocks, struts and springs.
  • Don’t brake when directly over a pothole. Applying the brakes causes the car’s weight to shift to the front wheel and can increase damage. It’s better to brake before impact and then roll through the pothole at a low speed.
  • When driving over a pothole-filled road, hold the steering wheel firmly to avoid losing control.
