Britian is currently facing a pothole epidemic – the impact of this for road users is obvious, but a more tacit consequence is the effect it has on pedestrians tripping when crossing the road.
In 2011, an AA study found an average of 14.9 potholes in a one hour exploratory walk around their local area. This has risen from 2010’s average of 12.9 despite extra repairs made by local authorities on remedying the situation.
Furthermore, potholes can occur in pavements themselves and present a risk of serious injury for any pedestrian.
