Village May Use Potholes to Slow Down Speeders

LONDON--Officials in the small English village of Navestock, some 25 miles northeast of London, are considering leaving many of the town's potholes unfilled as a way to bedevil the speeders who zip through town at a breakneck pace.

There's another advantage as well: Leaving the potholes alone is a lot cheaper than fixing them.

Nothing new here. My Eastern Washington hometown has had this policy for decades.
