In these continuing days of austerity, which appear to be rolling on despite the UK economy performing better than many others around the world, local authorities have to prioritise their spending. Unfortunately for local councils, money does not grow on trees, so they have to cut their clothing according to their cloth. Britain is not like Norway, where oodles of oil money allows the state to spend on pretty much anything that is needed.
One of things to suffer as a consequence of the squeeze on local councils’ spending is the country’s roads and pavements. Regardless of whether you’re a car driver, a cyclist or a pedestrian, you will likely have noticed that the roads and pavements in your area have been deteriorating of late.
This is not only unsightly, but could be dangerous, causing you to be injured in an accident that was not your fault. If this were to happen to you, there might be a chance that you could take some form of personal injury action for your bike accident in Kirklees against your local council.
