Potholes can be more than a nuisance. They can be a danger to cyclists and others. In the UK, there's an average of one road defect for every 110 metres of road.
Local councils have a duty to maintain the roads, but they can only fill a pothole if they know about it. If you want it repaired, you have to report it.
You can find a link to the SCC Report a Problem on the Road -or look at the Use Contacts Page.
Simply log the issue on the map and then fill in the details using an online form. You can also leave an email address to receive updates on potholes they have reported. Reported road defects will be inspected within 3 working days.
You can also report a dead animal, blocked drain on the road, damaged gully, street light, traffic sign, problem with a right of way and a lot more on the website.
Stop moaning and report it.
