Sioux Falls, South Dakota (KELO) – KELOLAND News has covered pot holes many times this year, but they cost drivers hundreds of dollars and sometimes more, so Sioux Falls can’t ignore them.

“I’ve seen many potholes, but I think this year is the worst,” said Teresa Myers.


Teresa Myers has lived in Sioux Falls all her life and says the potholes are hard to miss this year.

“I had to hit the brakes a few times so I didn’t go into the crater and I was afraid of being hit from behind. People were right behind my car,” Myers said.

She hasn’t ruined any of her cars yet, but many have experienced severe damage to tires, rims, and even suspension.

“Things are going from bad to worse,” said Tom Broadbent of Airway Auto Service.

Tom Broadbent owns Airway Auto Service.

“We see a lot of damaged tires and damaged wheels,” Broadbent said.

He’s also the worst I’ve ever seen.

“Every day now we have bent control arms, bent frame parts and ruined cars. , go to the salvage yard.

This is a demonstration of what a bent rim looks like..(natural sound)..it needs to be replaced and it’s expensive.

“If you hit a pothole and the tire blows out, it’s probably because you’ve damaged the tire and rim or the suspension,” said Broadbent.

So the best advice he can give people is to slow down and do your best to avoid potholes until the city has a chance to fully repair them. This is something he is also looking forward to.

“Oh yeah, I really do,” Myers said.
