That is if the views of residents in Croydon are anything to go by, as many people living in the area have criticised the policies of their council when it comes to repairing roads, the Coulsdon and Purley Advertiser reports.
At present, the authority's "find and fix" way of going about handling such repairs means that they only correct the potholes that are perceived to pose the greatest threat to road safety, but leave less serious hazards to fester.
Therefore, rural roads - which are generally most affected by such issues - are only checked once every six months, with highways in town centres being given higher priority.
Jean Shields of Smitham Downs Road, Purley, told the news source: "When you look at the policy itself it is just silly. Something needs to be changed."
