Potholes, everybody's favorite.

Everybody's favorite subject, by not mine especially when one is right outside my front gate and I get caught out with a faceful of water from a passing car if it's been raining and I don't hear it coming.

Three weeks after a letter to the Council and no reply from their highways department, returned from a short break to find their guys have been and only half filled that three inch deep pothole. Small mercies n all that and better than a poke in the eye, but why on earth can they not do a proper dig out and repair job as instead of some half hearted 'ticky tacky sticky stuff'.

Surely that makes more sense than having to call them back as I will do in time and in short order.

Madness. Crazy2

Re: Potholes, everybody's favorite.

That's a small one. We have mine shafts round here....... although it looks like they are going to resurface the entire road shortly. Lots of lines have appeared on the road. Smiley Hooray!

Er... should some thing phallic be in the hole, not around it?FunnyP1110103a-1068x801Potholes, try Kenya, where off the few main roads they're filled with what comes to hand time after time.

Anyone for tennis dodgems? Funny

 

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

@idonno 

Size is not everything Wink

....and not when it fills up with water and I get what feels like a bucket of water over me. Maybe I should get them to make it deeper so the water can just drain away Grin

Don't know about Kenya but that's the sort we get round these parts. Lethal on a motorbike. Last one (series of them) I reported was at a T junction. Yep, they filled in the holes but did they do anything about the loose gravel, not a hope.

Re: Potholes, everybody's favorite.

No excuse for potholes, there are a number of gangs in this area who have some tarmack 'left over' after finishing a job and we can do your drive "For a good price Sir"
