Road to Ruin

As most drivers will be aware the road surfaces in the North West of England are deteriorating rapidly with Local Authorities taking little or no action to fill pot holes and resurface the worst affected roads.

Latest statistics show that claims against local authorities for damage caused to vehicles due to improper road surfaces has risen 50% in 12 months.

Although not an issue which is isolated to the North West of England it has been widely reported that the North West has the worst roads when compared to those else where in the Country.

Yet year on year road tax rises and there is little return on our money and increased danger round every corner.

Letters to Local Authoritys rarely work as they hide behind the 'budget cuts' arguement. Well now is the time to make central Government stand up and take notice.

This is a petition to force 'our' Government to take this issue seriously and to devise a way to make our neglected highways safer to drive and ride on.
