Road completely shiny and smooth.

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 10:10, Tue 29 September 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2316545.

The surface dressing applied at the beginning of September was damaged by rain. The surface is slippery and smooth causing a hazard to traffic. Council acknowledge the problem but responded by putting up skid risk signs and speed limits. This is a 40mph road with junctions. If powered two wheeled vehicles must do 20mph due to skid risk, 4 wheeled vehicle drivers close pass and try to kill them. If I skid or crash council will claim I'm travelling faster than advised limit to avoid blame. Please resurface the road before it gets too late to do this. It won't get any better from your monitoring it.
