POTHOLES HAVE BEEN a good thing for Mike Upton.
Upton, who owns four Upton Tire Pros service centers in the tri-county area, has one or two customers a week whose cars are damaged because of Jackson’s roads.
“An alloy wheel, if it’s hit at the right speed and at the right angle in a pothole, will bend easily,” he said.
The capital city has some of the worst roads in the state, according to the Central Mississippi Planning and Development District (CMPDD).
