Potholes on the road are a serious hazard that can pose a substantial risk of damaging your vehicle or worse, causing road accidents.

Just recently, the Johor Bahru Sessions Court awarded RM721,000 to a Malaysian motorcyclist who suffered injuries after hitting a pothole due to a company’s failure to maintain the road.

Incredibly, the deep hole could fit almost the entirety of the relatively long tree branch, which goes to show the danger that the pothole poses to road users.
