Re: says it all about our roads really

Kinda misleading wording there "It was then swallowed up by the hole, which was 10ft wide and 8ft long." - but actually just the front fell in.

Laugh of the day has to go to this sentence though "His father, also called Chris and aged 54, rushed from the family home in Kingswood after being alerted to the accident and was hurt when he fell into the hole trying to release the stranded truck."

Don't worry son, I'll save your ... aaargh!

Re: says it all about our roads really

I hope the goverment pays them for a new truck to be honest!
we pay road tax for them to maintain the roads, and i'd be dammed if they didnt either replace or repair the truck!!

no we dont

your council tax is used to maintain the roads........ Motorways and some A roads are maintained by the Highways agency



your VED goes straight into government funds to pay for their holidays and second homes
