Fed up Brits are finding ever more creative ways of highlighting the UK’s growing pot hole problem.
Now car leasing firm Leasecar.uk has put together a list of applause-worthy efforts from rubber duck swimming pools to fake road signs, all designed to draw attention to unsightly pot holes in UK roads.
The stunts were all successful in highlighting the problem and encouraging the local councils to repair unsightly roads quickly.
A spokesperson for Leasecar.uk said: “Potholes can be dangerous. They can damage cars and many drivers will swerve to avoid them.
“We understand that many local authorities are strapped for cash and pot holes can come pretty far down the list of priorities but as a motoring organisation we feel it’s important to maintain road quality for both drivers and pedestrians.
“These three examples show just how creative we Britons can be when it comes to highlighting the issue of potholes. We think it’s wonderful when the public find creative ways to send a message to councils that roads need to be maintained.”
The spokesman for car leasing giant Leasecar.uk continued: “While there have been many attempts to resolve potholes in the UK, there will inevitably be problem areas in all locations to remain aware of.
“Looking after your car is something everyone strives to do for both safety and comfort, so understandably people are frustrated when potholes crop up causing damage to vehicles through no fault of their own.
“Our best advice is to try and take alternate routes to avoid problem areas and always check your vehicle if you feel that any damage has been caused by contact with a rough road surface. It’s important for safety reasons to check the condition of your tyres regularly too.”
