MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– The weather is warmer which means things are melting and thawing out. But it’s not all smooth sailing, or driving, from here.
Flooding can become a real danger with the warmer temperatures. And it’s also reeking havoc on the roads.
As snow and ice disappear potholes and frost heaves are left behind.
If you do hit a pothole you can try to get reimbursement. Last year the News 8 Investigators found 97% of drivers who filed claims with the state did not get reimbursed. Make sure you document the time, date and place and take a picture if you can safely. DOT says this will be a long pothole season.
“If you hit a good pothole you should take the tire off, especially if the rim is bent because the inner liner is probably damaged also,” said George Rosario, who’s been in the tire business.
