Danger to Motorists and Cyclists – Study Shows Poor State of Britain’s Roads

Local councils in England are to get a near-£6 billion fund to fight potholes over the next six years – according to a Government announcement. Minsters have been warned that these funds will be insufficient – some councils faced a backlog reaching £100 million to repair potholes in their area.

Bad road conditions cause significant risk to motorists and cyclists – being among the more vulnerable road users. Councils are responsible for maintaining their roads in safe condition and failure to do so may be a breach of their duty, and they will be liable for injuries suffered as a result of this. If you have suffered injury as a result of a road traffic accident caused due to a road’s poor state you may have a claim for compensation.
