Pothole deep enough to destroy tyre at speed limit - cannot see as dark and too dangerous to stop. Clearly an actionable defect in an area where there has been flooding and pot holes before

  • This is what happened to my car when I hit this pothole this morning! I was only doing the speed limit and unfortunately could not swerve to miss it as would have gone into oncoming traffic. I am nearly 8 months pregnant and the whole experience was very traumatic as I then had to drive somewhere safe to park and wait for assistance.
