Deep Rutting, Potholes & Road Surface Cracking

Reported via desktop in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 00:28, Wednesday 17 February 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2551071.

As can be seen in the pictures, the sides of the road are very deeply rutted, there are numerous potholes which are getting deeper and the road surface is cracking which will soon develop into more potholes and rutting of the road.

The road is also very uneven so difficult for non 4x4 vehicles to navigate, especially when having to drive into the rutting at the sides of the road when avoiding large / wide oncoming vehicles.

The road defects are serious enough to cause major damage to a car such as punctures or cracking an alloy wheel. If I do this to my car I would hold the council / highways legally liable for all damages and loss of income incurred due to the damage.
