    Default National Pothole Day 2016

    http://highwaysmagazine.co.uk/third-...4c2b-303696201

    The UK’s third National Pothole Day will take place on 16 January 2017 with the public invited to highlight repair issues near them.

    Website Street Repairs, which allows members of the public to quickly report street-level faults via their smartphone in real time, is behind the initiative which is now in its third year.

    This year the event is officially sponsored by Halfords Autocentres. As a result of this collaboration, any motorist can have their vehicle checked at any Autocentre free of charge after hitting a pothole.

    A spokesperson for Halfords Autocentres said: “Halfords Autocentres are pleased to be the official sponsors of National Pothole Day 2017 in partnership with Street Repairs. We care about the safety of the UK motorist, that’s why we decided to sponsor #NationalPotholeDay. It made sense that we offered a free steering, tyre and suspension check carried out by our fully trained technicians after hitting a pothole.”

    Mark Morrell, spokesperson for Street Repairs, added: “Working with one of the UK’s most recognised motoring brands to ensure the safety of road users is yet another exciting step towards correcting road safety issues and encouraging more people to get involved with the issue of road maintenance and vehicle damage. With more road fault reports being submitted and greater visibility of the progress of repairs, road users, councils and Highways England can work together to keep roads safe and free from potholes and other road defects.”

    Street Repairs offers a free way for councils to engage with their constituents and action any defects which are reported in real time.

    It was set up as a user friendly, geographically driven centralised forum for the public to report defects. Every report entered serves to highlight issues to local authorities that let their highways fall into disrepair.

    Last time I reported something dangerous (about 2 months ago) I got told they didn't have any budget to fix that.

    Last time I reported a pothole (which was just outside our house) it was fixed within 10 days.


    Council have a web page to report them and IME it works well
