Sharp Increase in Potholes Across the UK in 2011

Drivers are being advised to brace themselves for what experts are expecting to be the “worst ever pothole season”.

Last year, British motorists paid out £320m in repairs to everything from wheels and tyres to suspension failure. “That figure could pale into insignificance” said Emily Smith of Britannia Driving School.

Emily Smith added:”The roads are going to deteriorate incredibly quickly over the coming months. Giving the severity and earlier than normal arrival of harsh wintry conditions, everything is pointing towards a miserable period for drivers”

Anyone can report road defects using Potholes.co.uk, which has contact details for councils across the UK.
