3 meter crater

Reported in the Verges - Damaged by Vehicles category anonymously at 21:04, Wed 22 January 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways 2 minutes later. ref: 1955693.

I am replying to your recent comments on my post 1946284. 1. Firstly as I pointed out this is dangerous and un even ground is a trip hazard. 2. Car are cutting the corner and we have children playing in the street. 3. Over the years the crater is getting bigger and this will not be long before a car gets damaged or stuck. 4. You said its seasonal and this is not true, my son has dust allergies and this area kicks up dust from the traffic. 5. This problem is getting worse over the past couple of years and you are neglecting safety in our highways. 6. No street lights which decrease visability of the problem and increase the damage.

Please don't fob me off with the law, we have reported a problem which is causing a number of dangers to the public.
