The two largest factors that prevent timely repair of potholes are constraints on time and resources and inclement weather which puts conventional pothole patches at a high risk of failure. The Thump Pad, is an all-weather, reusable pothole repair product. The Thump Pad is a shock-absorbing pad that users simply have to place in a large pothole and it effectively pillows the shock of driving over a pothole in mere seconds. Once municipalities have the time or weather conditions improve, municipalities can go back and pick the Thump Pads back up, make repairs and use it in other potholes.
