Motorists on the Cloran Road, outside Athboy, are furious at the condition of the road, but one local resident has taken matters into his or her own hands by erecting a sign urging motorists to sue Meath County Council!
The sign indicates that there are 83 potholes on just 1km of the Athboy to Ballinlough Road and urges motorists to sue Meath County Council and even gives an email address for the county manager.
The sign went up recently and while most residents don’t know who is responsible, many say they can understand the frustration of whoever erected it.
Local residents say the road is treacherous and you have to come to a complete halt to get around the bend where the worst potholes are.
A spokesperson for Meath County Council said; “Obviously it is an illegal sign. You cannot just put up signs anywhere you like and it would be considered litter.”
She said the County Council would be meeting next Monday and once the roadworks programme comes before the council at that meeting, the council will embark on works around the county.
She said that under that programme, roads around the county would be repaired.
