    OK. In almost 50 years of driving I think I've wrecked three front wheels by hitting debris on motorways. Twice it was a pallet and once a concrete lintel (which wrecked the front suspension on the works Transit I was piloting). I've also swerved to avoid stuff umpteen times. Unlucky? I don't think so - it's just that I used to drive 25 to 35k miles every year for work at one time, much of it late at night/early in the morning.... So I DO report stuff like that - by ringing 0300 123 5000 (I have hands free and it's on speed dial)

    Interesting, a couple of questions. The incidents you describe, how many were preceded by a warning sign? How often have you seen warning signs (with or without "report of...") where there was debris?

    'Report of' because if they wait to confirm it in person before posting it someone could be killed during the wait.
