Potholes are once again causing problems for drivers in Southern California following recent heavy rains in the region.
The storms have caused the roads to deteriorate, creating treacherous driving conditions and ripped-up roads.
Repair shops are seeing a big increase in business due to pothole damage, with some drivers reporting cracked suspensions and damaged wheels.
The pothole problem has also created a traffic nightmare on the 71 freeway in Pomona, where numerous large potholes opened up, stranding dozens of drivers and causing damage to their vehicles.
Drivers can file claims with Caltrans and the City of Los Angeles for pothole damage, but in most cases, they will have to submit proof of the damage.
Experts advise drivers to drive slow and carefully to avoid potholes and to save receipts and document any damage if they do hit one.
