UK 'pothole epidemic' causes surge in breakdown callouts
News today has revealed a pothole epidemic caused by this year’s bad weather has contributed to the highest number of vehicle breakdown callouts in over a decade. Amanda Stretton, motoring editor at Confused.com says:
“It’s clear drivers are fed up of having a bumpy ride with breakdown callouts hitting a 15-year high. Our research found that 1,031,787 potholes were reported in 2016 and caused £3.1 million worth of damage to vehicles.
“If drivers do hit a pothole in the road, they should use our guide for advice on how to make your case for damage and report it to their local council before it gets any worse.
“The true depth of the UK’s pothole problem combined is as deep as the Earth’s upper crust (40,456m) and we’ve visualised this in a scrolling animation so drivers can see just how deep the problem goes in their local area.”
