A letter to No.10

Post by Tommy-Darcy on Tue 12 Mar 2013 - 14:44

Just sent this to No.10 Downing Street by e-mail. I know I am peeing in the wind but it makes me feel slightly better having got some of it off my chest. Unfortunately you are not given an unlimited amount of words, limited to 1000 characters, as I would have liked to have said a lot more. tap_fingers

"Cheshire East council don't care, but perhaps you do. I (like 1000's of others) am sick and tired of putting my life and other road users lives at risk trying to avoid the many pot holes in the South Cheshire Area. There was a time that our Road Tax went towards repairing our roads, but this obviously is not the case here. Main roads, B roads and inner town roads are all in such poor condition there WILL be DEATHS due to drivers attempting to avoid the pot holes so as to not wreck their cars. There is a cycleway scheme being introduced on the A530 but no attempt to improve the road conditions. Cyclists don't pay extortionate taxes to travel on these roads, and as daft as it sounds the A530 has also had a speed reduction enforced even though the cycle path will be in place. I guess it is cheaper to buy a 50mph sign than to repair a pot hole in order to tick a box. There have been numerous complaints sent to Cheshire East, but they just brush these under the carpet. We need action NOW!!"

I guess that other councils are just as bad but this is no excuse. GRRRRRRRRRRRR !!!!! censored!

Its not just the road tax (3 cars, 1 camper, 2 motorbikes) that I have to fork out for (family vehicles, a max of 3 in use at any one time) over 80% of the cost of fuel is tax of one form or another.

Oh how I wish I could get 500mpg from the camper just to put 2 fingers up to the thieving citizens of whitehall.
