‘Potholes are popping up faster than daffodils', according to a recent report in the Daily Telegraph’s motoring section.
The article went on to point out that drivers’ reports of potholes have increased by 30% over the last year. What’s more, the average depth of a pothole has increased by 25%. A prolonged period of exceptionally wet weather in 2012 combined with a freezing winter has resulted in a ‘pothole epidemic’, made even worse by years of under-investment in our roads.
For drivers the result is not just a bumpy ride. Continuous driving over uneven surfaces damages suspension and steering components which in turn pushes wheels out of alignment. Never has the need for wheel alignment been greater. And with current asphalt repair budgets being pared to the bone, road damage is set to become even worse. HAWEKA UK provides alignment solutions for all types of road vehicles.
