HAVE YOUR SAY: Pothole plague hits drivers in the pocket

Drivers are having to pay out hundreds of pounds on car repairs because of the state of Workington’s roads, according to local garage owners.
Have your say
motorists should be careful when going overtaking cyclists and motorcyclists they have to avoid the potholes so could change direction at short notice give them a bit more space behind and when passing. There have been several people knocked off their bikes around the country by cars and other vehicles because of potholes
There are few roads where a decent surface is in existence, some that have broken surfaces and small lumps and bumps but the majority seem to have pot holes, bad/bodged repairs and generally are degrading badly due to neglect and lack of any kind of regular maintenance. Our roads are in a shocking condition, non of our local councils seem to care and things are getting worse, I have been riding motorbikes for over 10 years and its got worse since I started and especially over the last 2 or 3 years its got very bad very quickly it needs sorted before its the cause of a fatality which is when things usually get done.
Saw signs up near Guard Street at Wukington for road works tuther day, hope they'll repair the huge holes whilst they're at it !Raj Sood, Motorcyclist
