Half way along South Drove

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 451780.
The local farmers have been taking produce from the fields and have left the road in a dangerous and hazardous condition. The mud extends quite a way down the drove from about half way. They have made no attempt to clean the excess mud away. Robinsons flowers on North Drove are one of the farmers as far as I am aware. My daughter has a special needs child and has an adapted vehicle. She had to brake suddenly on the drove to avoid wildlife and very nearly slid off the road into the hedge. This is NOT okay. The junction of South Drove and Beck bank had been brutalised by the inept driving of the tractors used and as such most of the verge has gone. This has to stop. They are not creating channels for excess water to soak away, as they always sweep the mud onto the verges of this drove and create pools, which in turn deteriorate the tarmac, which was redone in recent years. Now it is falling into disrepair once again. North drove is very bad for driving along, so traffic is increased along South Drove. We have been here for 20 years and the roads have never been so bad. The heavy machinery had collapsed the road in parts now, and in the long run, this means more work for the council, and more expense. There are now repeat pot holes developing outside our residence and this has to stop. Someone is going to have an accident.
