The AA has hit out at the state of Britain’s road drainage in the wake of a damaging poll.
In a survey of more than 18,000 members of the motoring organisation, 49% said sitting water was no better in June than during the winter storms.
The AA said the situation was “far from satisfactory”.
AA head of roads policy Paul Watters said: “Weeks of dry weather should have helped drain the winter water, and drainage systems should be resilient enough for summer cloudbursts.
“Along many stretches of often fast road, the flood signs pop up routinely, or simply remain. That’s far from satisfactory and will lead to extra cost, danger and disruption when heavy rain returns.”
