Pothole findings tell drivers "what they already knew"
A pothole website has criticised the Department for Transport's (DfT) recent findings on the condition of the UK's roads as something "ordinary motorists already knew".
The DfT recently outlined a number of tips councils needed to implement in order to improve the state of the UK's roads. However, the bosses at motoring campaign website potholes.co.uk have stated that they have been urging this since 2007.
Despite this, the website, run by Warranty Direct, has welcomed the "better late than never" action by the government to alleviate the growing problem which costs the UK economy a reported £1 billion a year.
The local transport minister Norman Baker announced that the government had set aside £3 billion to give to councils to repair and resurface roads.
Duncan McClure Fisher, managing director of the company, said: "Almost exactly four years ago, we reported a 46 per cent rise in axle and suspension damage that could be directly related to the 'patch and mend' process used by the previous government."
