When your driving the streets of the UK and maybe other far away places, how much time are you actually looking ahead of you at what the car infront & other road users are doing ?
All the time ???
Well today it dawned on me that perhaps 50% of my driving attention is looking at the road surface infront of me looking for pot holes etc. to dodge..!
Our roads really are that bad and unsafe !
Some of my local roads i use regular have had the usual yellow paint sprayed around the holes and have been that way for some considerable time. Today i noticed that those same yellow markings have been REDONE it's taking that long for the holes to be filled. Also noticed they're now painting a white 'X' on manhole covers that are sinking into there surrounds !
What the hell are the council's spending the money on thats actually allocated to road maintenance ?
I'll tell you what - they spend it on speed humps, blocking roads with kerb stones to slow the traffic, traffic lights on roundabouts and painting in soddin' cycle lanes !!!
