Some artists got fed up with potholes and decided to take matters into their own hands, literally, by using chalk to create caricatures of the politicians they blame for not fixing them. Too bad these officials didn’t know about US Cold Patch, the safe, easy way to permanently patch potholes.
Activists in Yekaterinburg have come up with a novel way to force their politicians to deal with the Urals city’s notorious pothole problem.
Under a project called “Make the Officials Work,”artists drew caricatures of top officials over some of the city’s many potholes during the night of July 23-24.
The effort to shame the politicians — which targeted Yekaterinburg City Manager Aleksandr Yakob, Mayor Yevgeny Porunov, and Sverdlovsk Governor Yevgeny Kuivashev — apparently worked.
