Pot Holes
Good to see the council finally putting a plan together. It's that bad though I doubt it will scratch the surface so to speak. I've never seen it as bad as this which shows the lack of investment.

I hit one on Church Road and my ABS and Warning Light came on. The council should pay for any repairs if we are paying road tax. What do they want us to do, swerve out of the way and hit something.

You have to prove they knew about it. I need to find a pothole reporting website. Then they get bombarded with the crap state of roads. Yet they find money to build speed bumps, but not to repair what’s already down.

It isn't road tax now though is it, it is car tax, an environment tax on co2 emissions.

The tax from motorists goes towards saving the planet, it is all rather convenient for the government switching from roads to environmental issues.

Has anyone driven along cropper road lately? Lorries delivering to the housing estate they’ve just built along with total neglect, has lead to to what must be Britain’s worst road. Any quicker than 10 mph and you’ll reck your suspension.

What do they use the money for that they charge companies to have traffic management?

In 1970 100% of road fund tax was used on the roads. Now it’s less than 20%

If you go on the Fylde Borough Council website, there is a page where you can report potholes. I know this because Mrs C hit one on Thursday evening and punctured a tyre. It was on Kilnhouse Lane, just after Queensway. Had the tyre replaced this morning and then drove to where the pothole was to take pictures. FBC have already filled it, so no chance of making a claim. Pretty sure they wouldn't have paid out anyway.

Must be a problem at their end. It was fine on Thursday. It's probably crashed due to the amount of people trying to report potholes.

Driving around St Annes today with the new tyre, I was actively avoiding them. It's impossible, there are that many. I ended up swerving round them and probably looked like I'd sunk 10 pints.

It's okay though, we're building a slightly faster railway.
