Fill It In Handle It Or Lose It - Report A Road
29th May 2006
Another way for riders to report where there is a problem, and exactly why it may be a problem for riders is the Handle It Or Lose It website.
The Highways Agency and local Councils have signed up to take part in the Handle It Or Lose It “Report a Road” facility.
From their website;
Do you ever come across a situation where you feel that the road is particularly hazardous to you as a motorcyclist?
Perhaps you’ve had a crash, near-miss, or scary moment where you feel that, even riding carefully and sensibly, there was an issue with the road that you felt was a factor in your incident.
Ever felt that no-one in the Highways Authorities is listening to you as a rider?
Well, now’s your chance to make a difference.
The Highways Agency and local Councils have signed up to take part in our “Report a Road” facility.
They want to hear from you, as a rider, about roads where you feel there is a design or maintenance issue that particularly affects motorcyclists.
Because two-wheelers have specific needs that many other vehicles don’t have, and the information-base for highways engineers about how bikes are affected by road conditions is fairly small.
They want you to tell them exactly where there is a problem, and exactly why it may be a problem for riders. Your information could make for a speedier response and solution, and it could also make for a cleverer solution
