Half of Britain’s motorists complain about pot holes

Britain’s crumbling pot-holed roads are becoming worse, believe half of the UK’s drivers.

Just under 50 per cent said their local roads had gone from bad to worse over the last 12 months.

The majority blamed potholes, according to the RAC report.


And, councils took the brunt of the blame for not repairing roads quick enough.

The local authority looks after local roads – motorways and A-roads are the responsibility of the Highways England.

But town halls reckon they need at least £10 billion to tackle the road problem over the next decade.

Nicholas Lyes of the RAC said: “Those living in rural areas definitely feel more hard done by, perhaps because they rely on their cars more.”
