Use fuel VAT rise to fill potholes, demands AA

Motoring group claims increase in duty could solve pothole problem in 100 days

Roadside rescue company the AA has urged the government to use the money from
the rise in VAT on petrol to fix all the potholes in Britain.

It claims the money to solve the problem could be raised in just 100 days,
with higher than usual petrol prices meaning the government is pulling in around
£1.1m extra tax per day.

“Potholes are the gaping sore in our roads network and councils know how
important it is to fix them to keep people safe and prevent damage to cars,”
said an AA spokesman. “Following the dire winter weather extra money is urgently
needed to fix all the potholes that are emerging.”
