Yeah, pot holes are bad for tires, rims, control arms, tie rods, etc, etc, etc. Hell, they can even cause most hybrid vehicles to stop regen braking as it triggers one of the abs or skid control systems.

I think a better one would be to recover exhaust heat for power or go to a mechanical hybrid system like was tested on garbage and ups trucks.
