Let’s fill in the potholes ourselves

It is now mid-summer and to still find deep potholes in the roads (College Lane to name but one) is nothing short of scandalous.

My small car is due to have its tracking and camber alignment for the second time in a few months.

The highway authority is costing a lot of us considerable expense when we already pay over the odds in our vehicle tax, petrol tax and rates.

I have a simple solution.

Let us all go to our nearest DIY centre, buy a bag of asphalt and fill in the holes nearest to us.

Problem solved!
