There are only few roads that don’t have potholes and during the rains, it becomes all the more difficult for the drivers of the vehicles to avoid the potholes since they will be filled with rain water and you never know the existence of a pothole unless your vehicle hits it. Apart from those commuting by roads regularly, who else will know the where the potholes are present in a road? The only people who came to my mind are the Neel Metal Fanalca (for the uninitiated, they have taken over from Onyx, the garbage disposal in Chennai) workers. They will obviously know all the potholes in a road since they clean the roads everyday. So why not give them the additional task of informing some official about the potholes present in a road and that official can in turn, get some workers to atleast do a patchwork on the potholes ASAP?
I have no clue about how the Corporation currently monitors the potholes in a road or if we can inform anyone about the potholes in a road and get them to do a patchwork on it. In case you know, then please do let me know too. This was just an idea that I got and thought I will just write it down here.
