* How much has your council paid out to drivers in compensation due to the poor state of the roads in 2011/2012 and 2012/2013;
* The road name which is the worst for pothole damage i.e. it is damaged more cars than any other road in the area (please let us know the road name along with how many cars it has damaged and over what time period, if possible);
* Would you say your council area temporarily fixes potholes rather than relay road surfaces yes or no question (yes we temporarily fix / or no we relay);
* How often the average road is fully re-surfaced (in years);
