> Maintain your distance - Leaving plenty of distance between you and the vehicle in front makes spotting any potholes a lot easier.
> Beware of puddles - Take care when driving through puddles, as you never know what's beneath them.
> Reduce your speed - Sounds obvious, but this is the best way to beat potholes as slower strikes means less damage and cuts repair bills.
> Drive over potholes with care - If you have to drive over a pothole, allow the wheel to roll freely into the hole.
> Check tyre pressure regularly - Recommended tyre pressures can be found in your vehicle's handbook and on the label located inside the driver's side door frame or doorpost.
