Take A Look At The Tweeting Pothole!

We may often think that everyday driving problems that occur in the UK just aren’t as bad abroad, but when it comes to potholes you’d be dead wrong. That’s why the television channel ‘Telemetro Reporta’ in Panama City has taken to extreme and inventive measures to raise the crisis of poorly maintained roads to the local government. The ‘tweeting pothole’ campaign firstly involves placing pressure pad discs in numerous potholes around some of the cities busy roads. When a car then drives over the pothole it triggers the pad which sends a tweet to the local government twitter account complaining about the state of the roads. So far the campaign seems to have worked with potholes being repaired more quickly and national attention being brought to the situation!
