Be wary of potholes

With the recent cold weather and following thaw, potholes are once again becoming an annoyance to road users

Water gets in to small cracks in the road tarmac. When the water freezes it forces the tarmac apart, forming a pothole. The Institute of Advanced Motorists has released advice for road users on potholes. Car drivers, motorcyclists and cyclists should all leave room between them and the vehicle in front to be able to see the road surface coming up and if needed take appropriate action. Be wary of other road users as they may change their direction of travel suddenly to avoid a pothole.
