On my drive back after collecting the car from Berry BMW today, the A4 going East into town from Brentford was full of deep potholes. The road had literally fallen to bits. It was difficult to find an unbroken surface and cars were weaving in and out of lanes to avoid these deep cracks. Looked like earthquake damage! I hit a few as they were unavoidable. Really shook the car. Thankfully, wheels and tyres still intact. The roads, if you can call them this, are getting really very dangerous. The government really needs to spend serious money on our infrastructure. It's falling to bits, not bit by bit but with unusual alacrity.
Next car: a tank! I hear they are going cheap with all the military cutbacks
