    OMG that's not a pothole, it's a range of canyons and ravines. You could do helicopter tours around that...

    If you put in a claim, claim for a new tyre as the tyre could have a weakness that isn't showing at the moment and that ain't a cheap tyre you've got there.

    I lost both n/s tyres last summer in a pothole, similar sittuation driving at night down a narrow lane. My complaints to the highways agency got as far as the legal department. Bottom line is, so long as the road is inspected in line with the councils own policy, then they are not liable.
    Kent County Council Suck.
    There policy states so long the road is inspected twice in a YEAR, then that is all that they need to do comply.
    .
    Please send all contributions for new tyres too..... (only joking).
