Pothole Damage Costs Drivers Billions Annually

A new study from AAA reveals that pothole damage has cost US drivers $15 billion in vehicle repairs over the last five years, or approximately $3 billion annually. AAA cautions drivers to remain alert to avoid pothole damage, and urges state and local governments to fully fund and prioritize road maintenance to reduce vehicle damage, repair costs and driver frustration. AAA Alabama spokesperson Clay Ingram says middle- and lower-income individuals are the most worried about potholes, with the majority of respondents in households having annual incomes under $75,000 expressing the highest levels of concern over damaged roadways.
