Buckinghamshire County Council has revealed it is to reform its internal rules relating to these hazards in order to make sure they are dealt with more quickly, the Bucks Herald reports.
Under the terms of the new regulations, potholes that are found to require urgent attention in council inspections will now be repaired within 24 hours.
In addition, the local authority will also now use the services of an expert technician to decide when and how less serious potholes need to be repaired, while also employing 12 professionals responsible for these dangers as opposed to the current group of eight.
This comes after the council stepped up its road safety efforts earlier this year, which has resulted in the number of highways inspectors it uses doubling since April.
