Pot Hole Accidents
Potholes are a major cause of traffic accidents in Miami. Potholes are created on roads when the top layer of asphalt wears away from the road surface, revealing the concrete underneath. Potholes, if left unfilled, can grow and expand, widening and reaching depths of up to 10 inches. Potholes create uneven surfaces on the road which can cause car accidents. Each year, people are seriously injured because they unexpectedly drive into road damage areas such as pot holes. Potholes can also cause serious damage to your car. In fact, driving into a deep hole in the roadway can have the same impact on your car as a low-speed car accident. Potholes can also cause damage to your car's suspension and shocks.
