Best way to patch a pothole is to NOT drive over the new blacktop with a truck

If you drive over the new a blacktop, you are just pushing it back and forth. You need to pack it straight down with a tool like this:

  1. At a minimum it should be “tamped” down with the 17.99 tamper from Home Depot two different sizes…. Really should have a small mini ride-on asphalt roller if you want much better results..

    Typical city response “well this is how we’ve done it for years”……
