Guy Comes Up With Inventive Way to Get City to Repair Potholes


Residents of Middlesbrough in the United Kingdom recently came up with an inventive way to force their local government to fix potholes that they'd left unattended. Brad Nicholson, a local, told the BBC that the potholes had been in the road for more than a year when they decided to act by drawing phallic symbols around them. 

A local Facebook page, Teeside Connected, posted photos of the graffiti online. "It looks like some residents of Acklam have had enough of reporting these potholes to the council," the page writes.
