Potholes are a nightmare. And it’s time something was done about them.
So today s1inverkeithing begins a new campaign - Pothole Patrol!
The big freeze has caused massive damage to our roads. Scotland’s road network is deteriorating rapidly and more than one-third – or 12,800 miles – of all routes are now in an unacceptable condition. Audit Scotland today warned our roads will cost £2.25 billion to fix.
So this is your chance to get something done. Where are the worst potholes around here? Which ones have burst your tyre, wrecked your suspension or even worse, caused you to have an accident? Or which ones just look like an accident waiting to happen?
Here you can warn your neighbours about the danger potholes present, and maybe save them a hefty repair bill. Point out your least favourite potholes by posting a comment below. Say where the pothole is, and roughly how big it is. If you can, upload a photo (a snap taken on a mobile phone is perfect).
Then when we have compiled a list, Pothole Patrol will ask the Council what they are planning on doing about these dangers lurking in our roads.
Try to upload your comments and snaps to s1inverkeithing by Friday 11th March. That’s when we are going to go to the Council with the list. We’ll report their response as soon as we can.
