Editor's Opinion: The problems of potholes!

That is the issue with road surfaces – getting on top of the problem, and keeping them up to scratch, is a continual and very expensive job.
You get a bad winter, like the one mentioned above, and it puts authorities, not just here but everyone, on the back foot.
The budget is bust before they even start and then they are having to play catch-up. In these times of austerity, there is only a certain amount of money to go around – and the "pothole pot" is most probably running on empty.
