One easy way to avoid potholes when driving on any road is to simply monitor the activity of the vehicles in front of you. For example, if the cars ahead of you are consistently moving to one direction as they traverse a road this may indicate that a pothole lies ahead.  Go with the flow and follow the traffic in front of you as a way to avoid obstructions, obstacles and potholes in the road.  In addition, making a mental note of potholes in the area can help to prevent contact with these troublesome road hazards.
