Illinois Pothole Alert: Report Road Craters Before They Wreck Your Ride


Share post:

Springfield, IL – Attention Illinois drivers: the time has come to take a stand against the tire-busting, suspension-shaking nemesis of our roadways—potholes. The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) is rolling out an aggressive campaign, empowering residents to report these roadway pitfalls promptly. 

According to recent AAA findings, pothole damages have become a costly epidemic, with 1 in 10 drivers facing an average repair bill of $600—a $26.5 billion blow to motorists nationwide in 2021.

Potholes start as minor cracks but grow to monstrous cavities, spurred by the freeze-thaw cycles and regular traffic. To counteract this costly chaos, IDOT calls on you to report these road scars. Your vigilance, coupled with AAA’s tips for tire and vehicle maintenance, can save you from the jolts and jostles of unexpected road repairs. Keep your commute smooth and your cars safe—report those potholes and save your shocks (and wallet) the shock of a lifetime.
