Very deep pothole (8-10 inches deep and about 2 feet wide)

Cars swerving across road to avoid it (this will very likely cause an accident before long). Last night I could not see it in the dark and drove straight in to it, resulting in a very shocking bang. I will be surprised if no damage has been done to my car.

  • This huge pot hole has opened up again! It is extremely dangerous and very deep - i hit it yesterday in the dark, causing both my car and myself trauma we could have done without (and yes i will be sending you the bill for the repairs now needed for my car!) and this morning i witnessed several near misses from cars having to swerve violently to avoid this giant crater. There is going to be an almighty accident here before too long if you do not fix it properly this time! You actually have that area closed for repairs next week....could you fix this one too which is ten times worse than the ones you are doing?
