Potholes taking over New Zealand’s roads are causing a trail of destruction, Newshub reports, with popped tyres, dents and damaged wheel bearings. But what are people’s rights if a pothole causes expensive damage to someone’s car? One lawyer says the NZ Transport Agency Waka Kotahi is liable for compensation. “We all pay our rates, our road user charges, taxes for the upkeep of roads,” Angela Parlane, managing director of Shine Lawyers, said. However, if people do make a claim to Waka Kotahi, it could be months before they see any money.
