Is our pothole problem getting worse? Potholes are a huge issue for motorists and the peak period for potholes is January and February, generally the coldest months of the year in the UK. Professor Nicholas Thom, from the Nottingham Transportation Engineering Centre Research Group, was quoted by the national BBC News online and many regional media outlets on the perennial pothole problem. “The situation's definitely worse than it was a few years ago", he says. "There's no denying that fewer are being fixed, so it's more than likely the backlog of repairs is increasing."
