Motorists need to protect themselves from potholes by "reducing their speed" and report damage to their local council, the head of breakdown service has said.
Britannia Rescue raised concerns over the effect potholes were having on drivers and warned them local authorities were already facing "difficult choices".
Britain's pothole epidemic has resulted from years of under-investment in our roads and has been exacerbated by recent harsh winters.
Local authorities face difficult choices in the roads they prioritise for repair and we now have around 200,000 potholes on UK roads.
Motorists should protect themselves and their vehicles by reducing their speed on potholed roads, and also reporting damaged roads to their local council.
