    Now the spring seems to be arriving, can I suggest we all log dangerous potholes to our respective local authorities. It would be good to avoid another incident like this, from a letter in my local paper:

    {http://tinyurl.com/2m7c88}

    In an hour today I logged & reported over 20 hazardous holes (at least 5cm deep) on the primary position line - in just a 5 mile ride.

    :smile: I'm pleased to report that all the holes I reported were filled by mid-afternoon today. My local highway Authority relies totally on people reporting holes, so if a hole exists for more than a couple of days it is because nobody has bothered to tell them. They don't want the risk of being sued over an accident when they know about the hole. I'd guess most work like that nowadays, so if you see a hole, tell them.

    With http://www.fillthathole.org.uk it couldn't be much easier.
