You may not be able to avoid potholes, but you can claim for the damage with Matrix Pothole Assist
It has been reported that in Johannesburg alone, authorities receive an average of 1 000 potholes complaints each week, with the City claiming to fix around 4 500 potholes per month. In fact, the City of Cape Town has reported spending more than R110 million per year to repair 250 potholes per week. However, despite these efforts, potholes remain an issue we simply can’t avoid on our roads.
