Last Chance Auto Repair Plainfield Cautions Motorists Driving on Newly Resurfaced Roads

Some newly surfaced roads in Plainfield have damaged at least one motorist’s front tires. The motorist has decided to remain unnamed in the news report, but Last Chance Auto Repair said there could be others with tire damage.

Referring to the recent incident of at least one motorist with damaged tires, a professional working for Last Chance Auto Repair For Cars Trucks said, “We’ve seen quite a few tires with road tar accumulated on them over the years. However, in the past couple of days, we’ve seen more cars with a lot more tar on them.” 

Last Chance Auto Repair For Cars Trucks is possibly the oldest family-owned auto repair shop in Plainfield, IL. The auto repair Plainfield shop serves an average of 500-800 cars, trucks and SUVs a month. Most people will not visit a mechanic in Plainfield to get the tar removed because it’s almost expected that driving on newly resurfaced roads will get some tar on the tires. That said, too much tar can become a safety hazard, potentially causing the tires to lose traction. 

A CBS news report from a few days ago stated that the Corner of Lockport Street and Meadow Lane is one of the problem spots. Since tar was poured on a hot sunny day, it didn’t quite set, causing at least one driver to get stuck in it. However, two of the motorist’s tires were destroyed and needed to be replaced. 

Last Chance Auto Repair For Cars Trucks agrees that when tires are damaged by tar, they should be replaced right away. However, the professionals at the shop first try to save the tire by removing the tar while putting the vehicle through a battery of tests to ensure it is safe to continue driving.
