Compensation paid to drivers for potholes runs into millions
Compensation paid by councils across the West to drivers whose cars have been damaged by potholes has topped £1 million for the first time.
Figures out today show that thousands of motorists have claimed for the damage done to their cars from potholes.
Two cold winters in 2010 and 2011 saw a huge jump in the numbers of potholes, and the increase in the number of motorists claiming compensation for repairs from their local council was also made bigger by more widespread knowledge of how to go about making a claim.
Nationally, the research by consumer group Which? showed councils paid more than £20 million in compensation, £1 million of which came from roads in the West.
