Whilst car damage is often highlighted as a result of potholes, other victims can often be forgotten. One of the groups trying to raise awareness of the safety risk posed to them by these potholes is cyclists. A recent example of this came from Cycling UK, who have celebrated Pothole Watch Week between March 1st and 7th.
Fill That Hole Campaign
The ‘Fill that Hole‘ campaign has been started by Cycling UK to raise awareness of the danger that potholes pose to cyclists across the country. In order to do this, they have pioneered an app that gives people the ability to report any road defects that they come across. The alarming statistic behind their campaigning is that up to 15% of cyclists injured during crashes that come through Cycling UK’s legal services team are victims of issues with the road.
Fill that Hole is a part of the wider Pothole Watch where Cycling UK campaigns to local authorities to prioritise cyclists when planning road maintenance policies. The hope is that this will lead to local roads getting the attention that they need rather than motorways and major roads receiving most of the funding.
