Motorists are really getting the hump with all the potholes and craters made worse by the recent bad weather, tearing up their car tyres and damaging their suspension.
Heavy snow and rain freezing in the cracks have added to the road problems and now the potholes and craters are ruining tyres, balance of wheels, steering and suspension.
Many vehicle owners may not even be aware yet that they are the victims of the road menace and could be suffering slow punctures or need steering realignment.
At etyres our nationwide fitters have seen the car tyres casualties, caused by drivers jolting over damaged roads which have been camouflaged under snow and ice.
We urge motorists to check their tyres for signs of damage and their wheels for bent alloys. These can cause serious accidents and long-term damage to vehicles if they are not put right as soon as possible.
Motorists can also log on to the FixMyStreet.com website and report and make a complaint about a problem in their area.
The website, which has been flooded with reports since the bad weather, then sends an email to their relevant council.
