They put 13 pairs of speedhumps in on the main road at the top of my street. It took us 2 years of campaigning to get them removed:mad:

Motoring bodies have proven beyond doubt that these speed humps or "Cushions" as they prefer to call them around here, cause major damage to tyres and suspension actually causing accidents to occur:shakeno:

Good news around here though is that since the government withdrew speed camera funding, Swidon got rid of them. Oxford and Devon and Cornwall are likely to do the same very soon.

There's some really nasty holes in my dark corner of the country and there's no point asking them to fix them. If they do decide that one is particularly bad they just patch it and that just lasts until the next winter when rain snow and ice get on with their onion erosion.
The weak conform, the strong survive.

Couple years ago a Nissan skyline lost it going round a bend because he hit a pothole mid bend wich caused his steering to turn right to the left slamming him into the wall at 40mph killing his 15 year old passanger so they re-tarmacked the entire bend with some really greasy tarmac wich caused my mate and a couple of days later another guy to low side it on the bend and from what i heard the second guy lost his leg so its a loose, loose situation, pot holes are dangerous but even when the council repaire them they dont think about it proply
