A hole in the surface of the road that is formed due to regular traffic, bad weather or use of cheap quality material at time of construction is termed as Pothole. Nearly one third of road crashes, injuries and death happens because of bad road and pothole. The problem increases, especially during monsoons.

  • Drives don’t pay full attention while driving.
  • Drives are not aware about depth of the pothole, deeper the pothole- higher the risk of accident.
  • No maintenance work by the concerned department.

Solution Hints:
