  • The amount of clay on this road is extremely dangerous, the road is constantly covered in clay Winter is making this problem much more dangerous The lorries have destroyed the edges of the road and the verges The lorries are travelling much too fast as they are being paid on a per load basis When they meet oncoming traffic they move to the edge of the road which they have destroyed causing them to drive into the holes where they loose control I have seen a lorry driver being bounced out of his seat and let go of his steering wheel The is going to be a serious accident caused by all of this at some point Sadly as it has been going on for such a long time nothing will be done until the is an accident Unlikely even then as the story has it local councillors ate involved in this project and that is how they manage to get away with it
