Now You Can Report Potholes To MDOT
Finally, the State of Michigan is stepping up to the plate and taking caer of those dang potholes that throw off our cars alignment at the least. Now if you spot one or have the unfortunate luck of hitting one, there is someone to call.
Michigan.gov explains how these pesky holes come to be...
Potholes are created when snow and ice melt as part of Michigan's seasonal freeze-thaw cycles. Moisture seeps into the pavement, freezes, expands and thaws, creating a gap in the pavement. As vehicles drive over the gap, the pavement weakens leading to a pothole.
According to Michigan.gov, the tips posted there go directly to the nearest garage that can help fix them.
Here's hoping for a smooth ride all the time in the Mitten state!
