Crater, Meet Car! Car…Crater!

Breaking News: Outer space isn’t the only place with craters…New Jersey has ’em too!

On a peaceful friday night I was only my way home from a rousing night of activities. The weather was a rainy 52 degrees and I was in an unnecessary rush to get home. Instead of driving very carefully to make sure that I do not damage anything, I decided forsake all discretion and drive semi-aggressively. My aggressive driving led me directly to one of the aforementioned Pluto-sized craters, residing in Elmwood Park, NJ.

The crater was seeking revenge on cars and my poor automobile was its first victim. I drove into the hole at around 40 mph and BLAM, the hole bent my 1 month old 20 inch rim…and it hurt!

Now I have an oval rim and a dilemma to face.
