  • This pot hole is now extremely dangerous and occupies the drivers-side wheel line on the up-hill side of the road. If you try and avoid the pot hole you have to swerve onto the other side off the road and risk hitting other traffic or drive over it and cause untold damage to your suspension and tyres - as i did in the dark last night.

  • So I hit this pothole this evening and it blew my tyre. I had to wait by Camp Road for an hour for a recovery truck. I will be proceeding to claim for the damages it has done to my 5 month old car.
