No one likes pot holes....If you are a motorcyclist, you know what you mean. It can be as bad as hitting a wall...Those holes needs to be fixed ASAP but takes time and money- maybe it requires many paper work or some bureaucratic bullshits to get to it.
Anyway, several students of the Polytechnic University of Milan, Italy, have come up with a brilliant and reasonably easy idea. Their idea consists of having a base layer under the road surface that has a highly visible color. When a pothole appears, the bright color is visible, so that you can be at least warned and avoid it.
Some guys are being naysayers; their idea “doesn’t tackle the real issue of preventing potholes in the first place.”
It is better than nothing, isn't it? Or you can go for more tree-hugging style; planting a flower in a hole.
