Autoglass® Reports Decrease in UK Road Maintenance Budgets
October 14, 2011

Belron's United Kingdom company, Autoglass, has reported that many local road maintenance budgets are down in the United Kingdom, as the result of a recent Freedom on Information request conducted by the auto glass retailer.

The company says reductions of approximately $23.6 million (USD) have been made in this area, and company officials suggest consumers may be at risk due to this.

"Cuts in the road maintenance program will inevitably mean potholes go unfilled and cracks are left unrepaired," says Matthew Mycock, Autoglass managing director. "This will cause discomfort and inconvenience to drivers, damage to their vehicles and even jeopardize their safety. Every day, we hear from our customers that traveling around parts of Britain is becoming a nightmare because of the state of the roads and this is not likely to improve in the foreseeable future."
