Driving home from work this evening I drove over a pothole which took out two of my tyres. The pothole, I'm not even joking, was more like a lake . Phoned the council to inform them about it and there response was, 'well you're the driver so you should be aware of everything on the road and avoid the potholes'. They've refused to pay out for the damaged tyres as it's my fault, apparently? There are so many potholes where I live that if I were to avoid all of them Id' be swerving all over the bloody place. Do you think I should follow this up further, as how on earth can it be my fault? Yes, I drove over the pothole but, I didn't think it would be 5000 foot deep.
