    Subsiding roads - be careful

    After the load of snow we have had, the roads have subsided with some very nastly potholes, as we have learnt to our cost.
    The road from Somerton to Street is lethal as a pothole split the sidewall of the nearside tyre, but the whole road is a mass of potholes. When we looked at the road in daylight we were lucky it didnt take the suspension as well.
    So if you have low profiles and travel this road suggest that you drive out against the while line (not on the white line )

    Its the same here on our roads.

    Seems that any crack there was in the road filled with water, froze and pushed out the tarmac and made a nice big pot hole.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
