Hidden risk of potholes

Have your say

Potholes are putting pedestrians at risk as well as motorists, according to an AA survey.

Scotland was found to have the worst conditions, with an average of 8.9 potholes per mile on the roads and 2.81 on pavements/paths.

The figures were based on 800 hours of surveying of road and pavement/path conditions by AA members in their own neighbourhoods in October this year.

London had the fewest potholes on the roads – averaging 4.9 per mile, but its pavement/path figure was 2.4 per mile.
