There is a way to be reimbursed by the state of NJ for a flat tire or damage to your car caused by a pothole.

This sounds amazing and all but honestly is seems next to impossible to actually get them to cut a check. The odds are 8 to 1,280 claims (at least that's the numbers from last year) however, it could be worth a try.

No one likes dealing with potholes, they legit will have you turn down your radio, humble yourself and pray to the lord you didn't just get a flat in these uncomfortably cold temperatures.

If you do end up having to deal with a flat or damage it's of course going to cost you. It might be a quick fix like a patch or you might even have to buy a whole new tire.

If you've made it this far into it here's what you have to do to be reimbursed ... and by the way it's a total pain in the a** and you have to complete the process within 90 days.
