An infographic offering a visual representation of the pothole problem facing UK motorists has been revealed.
Using data from 2007 to present, the interactive tool created by used car website, Trusted Dealers, highlights various factors relating to potholes and offers a visual representation of the pothole problem that UK motorists encounter on a regional and financial level.
The graphic highlights key statistics relating to the pothole issue such as the total of miles of local authority-controlled road by region, the number of licenced cars in that region, the number of potholes filled over last year and the average cost to fill a pothole.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, announced during the 2014 Budget held on Wednesday 21 May, that the government would create an additional £200 million fund for local authorities to tackle the pothole problem. However, Osborne added councils would have to bid for a share of the funding.
