An Essex parish council wants potholes to be left unfilled for longer to act as a "natural traffic calming" measure. Navestock parish councillors claim repairing potholes is costly and allows motorists to drive faster. Critics say uneven roads are a danger to cyclists and motorbike riders and could lead to more insurance claims.
Has anyone done this? I know someone who allegedly claimed for compensation for new suspension on his car from the council but never had this verified. Can it be done?
