major road damage causing two blow outs ..

by tombloke

Driving up A5 north, 1.2 Miles north of Weedon Bec traffic lights, I could see significant road damage on left track of lane and moved to right only to drive straight into major ridged pothole on right of lane and had instant bang / blow out. Luckily I did not veer into oncoming lorry heading south. Would have been instant death. It was all caught on dash cam. BUT .. whats more amazing is that as I'm pulled over to change the wheel, another motorist suffered the exact same fate, and he was in a range rover with far bigger wheels than me.
