Potholes accidents are ‘deadly’. There have been several accidents and deaths due to an increased count of potholes in the world. The road contractors and higher authorities are taking time to fix it and it is too late to find out people dying due to this.
You never know what would happen when anyone bumps into it accidentally. Deaths due to ‘potholes’ is frightening the people who travel on roads. In fact, pothole deaths sparked a new controversy on inefficiency and corruption among municipal and road-owning authorities.
Let’s take a moment to appreciate artist Wansky for his thinking. Two potholes in Northeast England were fixed because of his bizarre drawing. He spray-painted some penises onto the road to highlight the exisiting issue. Yes, pictures of the potholes which were there for around a year appeared on a Facebook account called Teesside Connected.
With penis spray-painted in red colour and another one in black is seen surrounding two deadly potholes. The page later posted photo from a resident called Brad Nicholson, who had written ‘The power of the Willy. Repaired this morning 25-04-2019. Only been there a year, well done Middlesbrough Council.’
A spokesman for Middlesbrough Council added, “Middlesbrough, like all local authority areas in the country, has issues with potholes and repairs are carried out on a priority basis determined by the risk they pose to highway users.
Currently, however, we are carrying out pre-planned works in the Acklam area and staff were able to visit the nearby site on Fane Grove when the matter was reported to us and have patched over the hole.”
In a similar incident, an England artist spray-painted penises around potholes which were there for three years.
