Now the 3AW Mornings host has fallen victim himself.

Yesterday, while driving on Whitehill Road in Dromana, Neil hit a pothole.

The dealer Neil took the vehicle to said he’d received 20 cars with serious damage from potholes in the past week.

“I’ve got to pay the first $1460, we all pay that, we pay for their failure,” the 3AW Mornings host said.

“You told me it drove you white hot with anger.

“So we started a campaign, I’m now in the middle of it!”
