OK, here's a good one.
Alerted by a resident last week, I reported some potholes on Townsend Drive (the Council-owned bit, not the private bit that is just one big pothole). I heard back from Herts County Council: "We are unable to locate the fault. Your report has been cancelled."
I don't know what human senses they're using to locate potholes. Smell? I popped back to the road in question and took these photos:
|no pothole here|
|this is not a pothole|
|ceci n'est pas un pothole|
|deep, wide, but not a pothole|
|good road here|
|you get the idea|
I've resubmitted my fault report, urging them to go back and take a proper look. Let's see what happens.
