Potholes cause millions of pounds of damage to cars every year. Join our call for a new road sign to warn of the dangers.
By Chris Torney

The government must take urgent action to ensure drivers are warned when their vehicles are at risk of damage from potholes. That is the aim of a new Confused.com campaign.

We have set up a petition calling for the national adoption of a new “potholes ahead” road sign, which will indicate to motorists that they are about to encounter a heavily damaged road surface.

A survey suggests that pothole damage costs UK drivers as much as £400 each a year, with the overwhelming majority – 90 per cent – of road users saying they do not feel adequately alerted to upcoming potholes.
