Potholes are likely to boost the number of breakdown car cover claims being made in the UK, a provider has stated.
Consumers in the UK may be well advised to compare savings
on car insurance
deals available in the country following the recent spell of adverse weather.
Snow and ice has engulfed most of the UK over recent weeks and the AA has warned breakdown car cover
holders to be wary of the increasing number of potholes on roads across the country.
The provider noted that many driving surfaces up and down the nation are "on borrowed time", because of the combination of these hazards along with snow and heavy rain.
Simon Douglas, director of AA Insurance, stated that the last few years have seen an upturn in such problems.
"We expect the pothole problem to be significantly worse this year because of three successive bad winters and the growing backlog of road renewal," he added.
This comes after Paul Beaurin, managing director at Pro-Align, said recently that axles and wheels can be damaged during icy conditions.
