Residents who witness damage to road signs, street furniture and lampposts are urged to help Cheshire East Council catch up with those responsible and recover the costs.

Occasionally, motorists leave the scene following a collision, damage to a bridge, bollard, lamp column or other highways asset and this can place a significant cost burden on the council and, ultimately, the council taxpayer.

Since 2011, the council has pursued claims worth more than £3m to cover the cost of repairs. However, some incidents go undetected.

However, Cheshire East highways' Twitter campaign is helping to encourage people who witness damage due to a road traffic collision or other incident, to report it and provide whatever information they can. Useful information includes the vehicle involved and its registration number and any photographs, including the damage caused.
