It would seem that potholes are a big problem everywhere. In the UK it is bad enough, but it would appear that people in Chicago also have pretty bad too. As you will probably know potholes can take a long time to be fixed.
Hitting a pothole in a car is no joke, some of them are large enough to shatter alloy wheels and certainly ruin a tyre which is why artist Jim Bachor decided to take matters into his own hands. He might not have fixed them, but he's certainly made them look a lot better.
By using different coloured tiles Jim decorates the potholes with floral designs and sometimes even spells out a message on them. He keeps an online record of all the potholes he fills so you should check them out on his website.
