CONTRARY to what many people seem to think Kirklees highways staff are very good at dealing with potholes. I reported one last week that I thought was rapidly becoming dangerous. It was repaired the very same day.

Obviously they cannot deal with any they are not aware of. In some cases holes develop very quickly. If nobody lets them know and the hole gets big enough to cause an accident or damage vehicles there may be a lawsuit and we taxpayers will bear the costs.

Who is really to blame? I would say everyone who notices a bad pothole and fails to report it.
