I feel your pain. I only lost one tyre, but I also lost a wheel, so my bill was about £1200.

And I wasn't rich enough to repair the bodywork damage (well, until I completed the job using a Mondeo!)

Mac,you need a set of XJR wheels, which are forged so they won't buckle as easily as the other wheels.

Lol just noticed it was a Dunlop Sport Maxx anyway, you were on borrowed time before that started cracking / splitting

I can't seem to keep a car long enough to wear out the tyres. Except the XK8, in which I went through a pair a year.

I have never come across one that size... Fingers crossed I never do...! That is ridiculously big...
Absolutely agree, that's an accident waiting to happen right there

It was already filled in when we drove past on the way to the ferry again, less than 2 days later. Might be because when I notified the relevant dept about the pothole, I mentioned if a motorcyclist hit that at 60mph, there was a very high chance of them being unseated and very seriously hurt.

If Amey don't pay up, then there's something seriously amiss in the world!!

This was the problem I had.
Mine was on the motorway, highways agency turned up. I notified them of the hole, got an official incident number.
Claim was denied because they had filled it in within 48 hrs of my incident and therefore not negligible.
Nice system we have eh.

Right picture, wrong location. My pothole was in Arrochar, sir!

... although any drive from my house takes me along the coast road, which right now is a real mess of pot holes and partial fixes. The council (or their subcontractors) have taken to putting bollards in the holes until they fix them which is all very well except for the ones that are in the middle of the carriageway.

It might be very unlikely but it's occurred to me a couple of times whilst looking at pictures on here that show a time, place and registration number that maybe the owner might not really appreciate a picture of their car with said details on the internet. It's possible that they may be meant to be somewhere else and being confronted with pictorial evidence to the contrary might be a tad unwelcome? :whistle:

Well they shouldn't be driving their car then. It isn't exactly as though the whereabouts and reg. no. of a car at any given time is a secret.
