We all moan about pothole dodging, and i'm surprised I don't get pulled over for drink driving the way I swerve to avoid some of the holes in England, but boy have we got it good in comparison to those poor drivers in Scotland! I've just got home yesterday from a 3 day work trip around Scotland, starting in Dundee, then Edinburgh, Glasgow, and finally over to a stunning part of Scotland called Largs (amazing for cycling apparently) The roads up there are absolutely dreadful. One of the hotels I stayed in next to Glasgow airport meant I had to drive into that side of the city for food at night, and I was astounded how poor the roads were. What I can only assume possibly started as potholes and weren't repaired, had developed into huge parts of the road being almost underivable on. The road markings and lane separations in many places were virtually invisible, they had holes far deeper than anything i've seen, and I drive 1000's of miles a month. Even parts of their main A-roads and Motorways were a patchwork of poor repairs and more holes. The crappy thing was, it was quite noticeable once you got back into England, things were significantly better in comparison, and we have it bad here. I don't know if it's the whole of Scotland, and according to one customer I was talking to about it, they did have a really bad winter, but so did us in England. The state of the UK's roads in general are really poor in comparison to many other countries, but boy will I not complain about them again, and feel really sorry for the Scottish drivers that care about their vehicles.
