With all the rain we had this past winter, potholes are definitely an issue and in Oakland they are a REAL problem. But…two men who call themselves “pothole vigilantes” are taking matters into their own hands by going around the city of Oakland and filling the potholes themselves! The two men, who wish to remain anonymous, said they have been working at night, in the dark, for the past two weeks. They learned how to fill potholes by watching a few videos on Google and YouTube.
“It's quite easy... All you gotta do is just brush the debris out, fill the pothole up and just tamper it down,” they said.
They wait until after 9pm and they put their hazard lights on and go out and fill the potholes. They get donations through a GoFundMe page.
Coincidentally, the City of Oakland has also come forward and said they are working on funding to have city workers devote more time to pothole repair.
