Roadwork causing Broken Spring Problem to many cars including many broken springs
Mechanics said you should have your car alignment checked every year, but if you drive through a roadwork zone often or hit a big pothole, you should have it checked as soon as possible.
Broken Springs a problem
The problem of roadworks appears to be World wide. This article by WAFF is about the roads in the USA, but we have just the same problem here in
the UK. These roads with there ditches and potholes are not doing the cars suspension any good at all.
We seam to have half the roads in Yorkshire dug up at the moment ( probably getting ready for the Tour De France cycle race). The main problem for my garage at the moment is Broken Spring Problem and wheel alignment in Halifax being knocked out of position. These roads also have other premature steering problems such as worn out ball-joints.
The main problem to me is when the authorities repair a road they do not fill back the hole correctly and in a week or two, holes appear in the road causing the surface to break up and later more pot holes spring up.
Most motorists do not know that they have a Broken Spring Problem until their car has an MOT test, and it fails the test not knowing that if they knew where the hole in the road was, then they could have taken a photo and claimed for the damage caused from the local council.
I suppose i should not be complaining as long as we get some of the work in our garage ?
