Imagine if you start off the day with a good thought that you are traveling to the office, listening to some good music, talking to your friend simultaneously and suddenly your car ends up in a pothole and gets any of its components damaged, your day will get ruined, right?
Potholes can put a real damper on your day and your car. Some roads can get rather rough if city officials aren't quick to fix the streets. To overcome this, some people around the world are taking matters into their own hands. What must be their solution? Plant some flowers to cover those unsightly potholes and the end result gets pretty powerful. The roads are not only filled but these flowers have also enhanced the beauty of the streets. Kudos to all the people who came up with this idea.
Check out these pics to see what great initiative people have taken to put a stop to potholes.
Not only are potholes unsightly, but they damage your car and possibly cause a collision. Local officials are responsible for making sure the roads are plain enough to drive, but sometimes they don't get to fixing these pesky problems quite fast enough. Pothole flowers have been popping up in cities around the world, from Chicago to London.
Rather wait any longer, some citizens such as the Portland Anarchist Road Care group in Portland, Oregon choose to fix the problem themselves to help out the entire community. Although a fix with some cement gets the job done, other people are going for a more artistic approach.
Instead of filling the holes with bland pavement, people are planting flowers in troublesome potholes in their cities and towns. The effect is simple yet profound.
People are letting their cities know that they need to take better care of the roads, in the most colorful of ways.
A bright pop of color isn't something you expect to see on a mundane roadway, but these pothole fixtures are definitely garnering some attention.
Not only can they bring life to a dreary road, they allow motorists to avoid potholes safely. This can save drivers money on future car repairs or even help avoid an accident.
Enhancing the environment while making the roads safer for all? That's a win-win.
Although some city officials argue that these planted potholes are somehow illegal, there is no argument that this is a lively approach to getting things done. Here's to flower power!
In addition to live flowers, many creative people have also opted to create pothole art with other mediums, like shimmering mosaic tiles, multi-colored yarn, and embellished clay.
I am sure apart from how beautiful it looks, it has also solved the issue of potholes in different towns.
Such unique thought of covering a pothole.
To make it look more attractive people have placed bright, colorful, attractive flowers.
These flowers can also catch the attention of government officials, which works as a reminder for them. Sounds a good idea.
The locals not only plant the flowers but also take care by watering them.
It's how things should be done, It's how initiatives need to be taken. Such amazing work inspires not only people living nearby but the whole world when it becomes a headline.
