Potholes seem to be everywhere you turn.

While the city of Colorado Springs works on filling them, drivers in the meantime, are figuring out how to drive over them.

Local experts gave KKTV some unusual advice.

Bryan Fennell from Master Drive says, it's a psychological tip.

Fennell says the key is, believe it or not, don't look for potholes.

He says, keep your hands on the wheel and look 10 to 12 seconds ahead of the road.

Some potholes, according to experts, are unavoidable. But those that are, can be avoided without jerking the wheel and without slamming on the brakes.

Master Drive Manager Bryan Fennell explains this magical formula.

Fennell says, "Most people what they do is they tend to drive toward what they look at. So if you're looking at the pothole, you're going to drive towards it. And the next sound you're going to hear is 'thump'."

If there is a pothole within Colorado Springs city limits, and you would like it patched up, you can call the pothole hotline. The number is 719-385-6808.
