Potholes - A Preventable Choice
Potholes are a recurring issue that has captured national attention. Celebrities like Arnold Schwarzenegger are taking action in their communities, and we're joining the cause. But instead of just fixing potholes, let's explore how we can prevent them from occurring in the first place.
The Power of Preventive Maintenance
Proper preventive maintenance is the key to keeping our roads pothole-free. Just like you take care of your vehicle to extend its life, roads also need regular attention. Pavement preservation activities like crack sealing and rejuvenation can work wonders.
The Culprit - Water
Water is the main culprit behind road deterioration. By preventing water from seeping into the road's layers, we can avoid the formation of those pesky potholes that plague our roads.
The Cost of Neglect
Neglecting road maintenance comes with a hefty price tag. With millions of potholes to fix, the repair costs add up to billions. Moreover, American drivers also pay a price when their vehicles suffer from pothole damage.
We must recognize the current backlog of potholes, but let's focus on keeping our good roads in shape. Investing in preventive measures today can save us from dealing with costly repairs tomorrow. Together, let's pave the way for better road conditions nationwide.
