Potholes are a men­ace for cy­clists

- Health Care · Aberdeenshire

SIR, – With re­gards to John Maskame, hit­ting a pot­hole, fall­ing off his bike and end­ing up in ARI (Press and Journal, April 25).

I am in full sym­pa­thy with his plight. It is a dread­ful ac­ci­dent. I would like to men­tion my own ac­ci­dent; I dis­lo­cated my an­kle two weeks ago.

I had the most won­der­ful speedy care from all of the pro­fes­sion­als that treated me. I have the ut­most ad­mi­ra­tion for all the health care I re­ceived, it was truly first class. In Mr Maskame’s case I feel the apolo­gies should come from Aberdeen­shire Coun­cil, their potholes around the shire are a dis­grace.

How many more peo­ple are go­ing to end up in hos­pi­tal hav­ing come to a calami­tous end by hit­ting those of­fend­ing holes?

Lau­rencekirk, Aberdeen­shire
