Potholes in Scunthorpe and district 'popping up faster than daffodils'
The region's roads - including Scunthorpe and district - are in one of the worst conditions of any in the UK, a survey has found.
The AA has said 44 per cent over drivers on Yorkshire and Humber roads say they are in a poor state or even worse.
The survey found roads in Yorkshire and Humberside were second worse behind Scotland, with 44 per cent of drivers describing them as poor.
AA president Edmund King said: "This spring, our patrols are telling us that potholes are popping up faster than daffodils.
"These AA findings are deeply worrying and show that UK drivers are once again experiencing a bad pothole season after a lull last spring – perhaps with worse to come."
Professor Stephen Glaister, director of the RAC Foundation, said: "Our research shows that in the mid-1980s road surfaces were being repaired and replaced roughly once every 12 years or so. Today it is once every 25 years."
Only 10 per cent of those who took part in the AA survey rated their local roads very good or excellent.
The annual report from the Asphalt Industry Alliance (AIA) showed that last year council highways teams fixed 2.2 million potholes, 500,000 more than the year before.
Based on responses from 75 per cent of England and Wales councils, the survey reported the average English authority was £6.2m short of what it needed to properly maintain its roads, up from £5.3m in 2011.
