'OUR PRIVATE ROAD MUST BE THE WORST IN WALES!'
WHEN the Journal asked you to get in touch with your pothole worries, residents of one street in Carmarthen were on the phone quickly.
People living in Knoll Gardens claim the road has the worst potholes in Wales.
However, because it is a private, unadopted road Carmarthenshire Council says there is nothing it can do about the problems.
But residents say because it is so well used then the council could look at re-classing it again.

Robert Rees said: "As the council is now declaring a war on potholes it is now an excellent time to re-ignite the Knoll Gardens road issue.
"The road no longer meets the criteria of a private road and is now heavily trafficked by hundreds of vehicles every day, with every new development in the area bringing even more through traffic."
He is urging the local authority to help residents.
Resident Jacqueline Jones said her late husband had been trying for years to see the road improved.
She added: "I don't know what can be done, this has to be the most potholed road in the county, if not further afield."
Town and county councillor Alan Speake said he understood residents' concerns.
"Residents are getting a little fed up now. Something has to be done. It is not only an eyesore, it is very bumpy," he said.
"Hundred of cars are using the road these days, to which there is a case for it to be a public road in my view."
Carmarthenshire Council street works and adoptions manager Cliff Cleaton said: "Knoll Gardens needs to be brought up to full highway adoption standard before it could be considered for adoption by the authority."
