Pothole Cover

Pothole logo





We are all aware that our roads take a pounding from heavy traffic and changing weather patterns which causes wear and tear and thus the dreaded “Pothole” has become a nasty reality for all of us. The unfortunate reality is that the authorities that manage the roads are stretched in terms of resources and funding and thus these potholes often take a long time to get fixed, if at all. As tax payers we have the right to expect more, however we don’t have a clear channel to address this problem.



 How does it work?

In the event that you are involved in an incident with a pothole, you have the opportunity to claim from the relevant roads agency concerned. This process can be tedious, time consuming and without legal assistance, potentially impossible.
