|All too common|
In all honesty the roads in Coventry are easily as bad as the roads I've seen on my travels in eastern Europe. Perhaps worse.
To get around this I've been try to change my route to work. However nearly every route I try is either comparable or worse than the route I already take. I did manage to change the route a little in the end, sticking to an A road which adds a couple of miles onto my journey.
I'm guessing that Coventry council prefer to spend my road tax on the hundreds of speed cameras than on maintaining the roads. A strategy of making roads undriveable to reduce speed I think! Perhaps they'll fix the roads when they realise that they're getting no income from the cameras :)
