I have to ask why our roads are in such a poor state of repair, with potholes everywhere.

Millions of pounds is received by the Government in road tax, parking fines, congestion charges and now low emission zone charges. Where does this money go and why are the roads not better maintained?

All I hear is there is no money. Everything we (the people) pay for is not available. Cutbacks have been made to all services. Is there someone out there who can tell me where our money goes and what it is used for. It seems we have to pay more to get less.
