Tyre Damage from sticking drain cover
Reported via mobile in the Drainage category anonymously at 15:21, Friday 30 October 2020
Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later
The drain outlet cover protrudes into the high way and was covered with vegetation which meant it was obscured from my view so I could not see it and hit this cover. It has damaged both my near side tyres, blowing out one and creating a bulge in the other. I have had to get a tow truck to take me to a tyre garage to replace the tyres as the car was not drivable.

Thank you for your report. Drainage Kerb offlets, such as this, are widely used in verges and footways across the County and are set back in the line of the verge and off the carriageway. This road is monitored regularly and we have no further reports. We will continue to monitor during our routine inspections. Regards
