But the mystery motorist, who has painted the words ‘fix me’ next to a number of the craters in Swanage, Dorset, could face prosecution if caught.
Martin Hill, maintenance manager for highways at Dorset County Council, said: ‘We have found several potholes marked in this way. It is illegal and anyone caught doing it could be prosecuted.
‘We haven’t received any enquiries about these potholes and our local inspection team had already identified them before the markings were made.
‘They have been added to the work schedule for the next week. It’s important to note the roads in Swanage are in no worse state than the rest of the country.’So, you're as crap at your job as all the other maintenance managers around the country?
Did that excuse fly when you were six, Martin, and Mummy asked you to tidy your room and you responded by telling her that all the other boy's rooms were just as messy? No?
Well, you're in the grown-up world now, and guess what? It shouldn't work now, either...
