LONDON, September 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Most drivers are aware of certain factors affecting the condition of their cars including their own approach to driving and environment influences beyond their control. However, recent reports have also suggested that the state of the UK roads is starting to have a negative impact on motoring in the shape of widespread damage.
The British roads have come under scrutiny of late because of the proliferation of potholes in various counties and regions of the country and a new study suggests that since 2010 a staggering 54,000 compensation claims have been lodged against councils because of damage caused to vehicles. In monetary terms, this has seen council part with around £5million in compensation.
However, the study conducted by Britannia Rescue does not put a figure on what the cost to councils might be if every motorist affected by the poor state of the roads in the UK were to make a successful claim. The report in fact suggests that the roads now account for a negative impact on around one in five cars.
