Operation Pothole in Watts

A Russian ad agency shows its displeasure with potholes by creatively shaming politicians into fixing them. The translation is roughly: "Patching repairs will be completed by the end of April 2012." Taken from the blog "This is Colossal" (click image to visit).

Do you live in or travel through Watts? Are you stymied by the potholes there? 15th District Councilman and Chairman of the City Council’s Public Works Committee Joe Buscaino  plans to come to your rescue.

Following up on efforts made in Wilmington, San Pedro, Harbor City, and Harbor Gateway, he is launching Operation Pothole in Watts.

On Saturday, January 26, a two-man crew from the Bureau of Street Services will spend an 8-hour shift filling as many potholes as possible.
