RAC app warns drivers of potholes

The RAC has released a new app which it hopes will decrease of volume of potholes on Britain's roads.
RAC app warns drivers of potholes

RAC Report Pothole, will allow drivers to pinpoint locations of potholes, alerting authorities directly.

Users will be able to take pictures in order to get potholes fixed more quickly, with the app allowing you to report abandoned cars, broken street lamps and other hazards that largely go unreported.

The app’s release comes in the wake of new research, which shows that damage to cars as a result of potholes was up 82% over January and February this year - despite the fact that the UK received a mild winter.

David Bizley, chief engineer for the RAC, claimed that pothole damage used up time for the RAC and represented a huge cost for drivers.

“When a vehicle's spring fails it can't be driven and usually results in a call to us as the owner can't simply take it to a repairer.”

“The problems caused by bad quality road surfaces are not confined to suspension springs either - shock absorbers can be affected, and tyres and wheels potentially damaged.”

Early feedback of the app has been positive and has seen potholes being tended to quicker than before.

The Asphalt Industry Alliance has estimated that over £12 billion is needed in order to completely restore the UK’s roads, with pothole related damage costing motorists more than £1 million a month.

With the app currently in service, the RAC continues its campaign to bring better roads to Britain.
