I've been reporting these a few at a time using the CTC App. The first of these was three weeks ago. A displaced catseye leaving a hole 500 by 300 by over a 100 mm deep. I checked yesterday and it's exactly the same. Looking at the follow up page the it gives a road location and a grid reference of "NT 46366 63286" I can't get google maps or Google Earth to locate this on their mapping.
Two questions, is the grid reference going to be of any use to those trying to locate the hole & how long is it fair to give the council to fix this.
Thanks in advance, Dave.
Lets assume you are the sort of person who might just break your windscreen to get a cheap replacement.Now take a hand axe and deliver a sharp blow to your old wheel.Take a picture and claim off the council.They may shift their backsides to fix the hole.Lets be clear here,this is an entirely hypothetical scenario,not to be recommended ,no,not at all,never,no.God forbid,I,m not encouraging this sort of thing,of course not----what do you take me for.
