Cabbie’s £3,000 repair bill highlights pothole danger to tyres

15th August 2012

A taxi driver has been forced to shell out a staggering £3,000 to pay for a repair bill due to one severely potholed road, Mail Online has reported.

The offending road in Axminster, Devon dealt local man Peter Moore three broken wheels and five damaged tyres, as well as decimating his Honda Accord estate's bumper, under covers and an engine sensor.

Mr Moore complained that work to maintain the road by the county council has been sporadic, filling in individual potholes and failing to fix the problem overall.

"They are supposed to go and check the road every six weeks but, if they do, all I can say is they obviously have no sense or feelings," he told reporters.

When quizzed about the destructive highway, Devonshire County Council stated they were in the process of repairing the road.
