    POT HOLES!!!! Is it me or are there more than ever at the moment?

    ****** pot holes... I have bought a posh car with low profiles and big 19 inch alloys and only after a week I have damaged the alloys! I seem to be swerving around the dozens of pot holes every few minutes on the roads!!!

    Rant over!!!

    No it's not you. There are more than ever.

    Roads were better maintained when the guys who did it lived locally.

    Now they are brought in from everywhere and don't give a stuff!

    Rant over. :x

    Rant over . . . (unless you haven't seen anchorman, then this makes noooo sense)

    Too true i do loads of miles and i am sick to death of holes in roads
    rant over also:x

    Its not likely to improve either over the next few years as money is going to get tighter and councils will be looking to trim their expenses.

    Its partly because we've had quite a long cold spell. The frost gets into the tarmac and it breaks up. Once it warms a little they'll be out mending them (hopefully). They cant do that in the winter too well.

    It is also to do with the pisspoor jobs they do when repairing the hole! Is it just me or is it that all they do is shove some tarmac into the hole then pat it dry and leave?

    well the one on our road has been filled twice in the last few weeks and it is now a pot hole again! I never seemed to notice that many over the years but now they are EVERYWHERE on every stretch of road!

    RANT not over yet!

    My poor alloys...they were shiny and new with no pot hole damage just over a week ago...and as for speed bumps which catch the underside of my front end....just don't go there!

    Aii.

    On the plus side i've been offered a bit of work replacing somebody's wishbones :lol:

    if pot-holes are such a problem why do you have "a posh car with low profiles and big 19 inch alloys"?
    I agree though, there are more than ever. It makes me wonder where all the Road Tax goes.

    i had noticed this myself actually, probably because councils lost all there money in Iceland :roll:

    If you do get damage, photograph the hole, with a ruler in shot to measure depth and size, and complain to the council, you get a mixed response, sometimes you get compensation and sometimes you don't :thumbsup:

    What car you got? Pics!!! :-D

    A Britsh design classic

    I'm a road inspector and would have to agree there are way too many pot heads around compared to before.
    I think the government has a lot to answer for. I mean in Amsterdam which is the Pot Head capital of the world you wouldn't have this problem with them on the roads.

    You should take a picture of the hole that caused the damage and report it to the council - they have insurance for that purpose and you should get a pay out for compensation.

    I too have a big posh car with lovely 19s well should say had 19s on Ive took them off and put the 16s back on, pot holes around here are just stupid, one road in particular I have to do 4 times a day on the school run!!!

    i agree
