  • This pothole has still not been fixed I have now got to pay out for a new tyre in my car. It cannot be seen in the dark and is very deep.

  • This hole is extremely dangerous, nearly hit it last night and is on a left bend which if you try to avoid throws you into on coming traffic... Please fix !

  • This is a very dangerous pothole indeed. It will damage vehicle suspension and wheels and may well cause a los of control.

    There is another pothole in the previously repaired section a few feet beyond this one - that needs to be repaired as well.

  • I have just become a victim and am currently awaiting recovery. At least six cars were changing their wheels when it happened to me.

  • I hit this pot hole this morning, there was a car parked just around the corner from this with a flat tyre which was probably done by this pot hole luckily I have run flats but again I'm sure this tyre will need replacing at the MOT as I have to every year because of pot holes!, this hole is getting bigger and will need to be repaired asap.

  • This pothole destroyed my alloy trim today. This is very dangerous and I have to change my alloy trim. Please fix!

  • Nearly rear ended parked cars getting recovered last night . It appears the hole is back and numerous victims were getting recovered.. Hopefully repaired AGAIN as I didn't come that way this morning.. If one of my customers hit that on a bike it would be game over.. Extremely dangerous..

  • Driving home from work and couldn’t avoid as too big and oncoming traffic, on a corner as well so not enough time to stop, very dangerous, popped tyre and ruptured my alloy!

  • Sounds like this has caused significant damage to a number of vehicles

  • Hit this pothole on 4th January at about 9:20 am. It is ruthless. It is on a bend and cannot be seen until too late, and a van was coming other way so I couldn’t budge. I was helped by someone who lived on the road who enquired for garages in the nearby Launton and Bicester for a spare tyre for me. After hitting the pothole the tyre went flat as a pancake instantly. I didn’t realise at the time but the alloy wheel instantly buckled, much worse than you can see in this picture after Philips Garage did a great job hammering it back in, suffice to say the alloy wheel was busted aswell as the tyre. It took me days and money to get a new wheel and tyre, this pothole got me and I saw many others line up after hitting it and talked to people who had hit it previously.
