A Midlands motorist was left livid after a huge pothole ‘shattered’ the wheel on her Range Rover Sport!
The driver hit a series of potholes, she says, with her luxury car being left unfit for the road. The fuming driver says the vehicle is now “undriveable” – claiming: “I travel along the road occasionally to get to Burton and although the road has always had a series of potholes, it seems that some of them have really got bigger lately.”
She added “The place where the damage was done has a couple of smaller potholes and a really huge one which it is impossible to avoid because of the narrowness of the road at that point. “I drive a Range Rover Sport, which has 22-inch wheels and the impact shattered the alloy into two halves and it is currently in the garage. The repair cost will be considerable.”
It would seem the UK’s wettest winter for years is taking its toll on our roads with an abundance of large potholes even on major roads and motorways. The local authorities seem to be very reluctant or too stretched to carry out repairs.
