Understand exactly what you're saying , i have a similar problem round my way and does my head in, our roads in this country are a !Removed! joke, about time councils got a grip and especially manhole covers, why the hell do they invariably place them in line with our road wheels!! I don't know what a state to get into!!
Cheers Pete

Trust me guys, you can't complain about potholes before driving around Malta. I think our roads are the worst in Europe!

I wish it was just pot holes up here. On my journey to work, which is only 6 miles, I've got to put up with pot holes, ruts, broken road surfaces, stones falling out of hedges, branches hanging across the road and in some sections it isn't even wide enough for 2 cars to pass! And this allegedly passes for an A Road!

What do I pay my road tax for? :angry:
