I'm a very old OAP so do not race around. I try hard to avoid potholes but obviously I have not missed them all. Bearing in mind the Road Fund Licence and fuel tax of about �4 per gallon, one would have hoped that all our roads could be kept in good order.

I have noticed recently many new road signs which, in many cases, duplicate those in place. If that money was spent repairing our roads, maybe I would not have to spend more than �100 to have new rear springs fitted.

A Fed-Up OAP,
