Tired of bobbing and weaving in your vehicle or on your bicycle to avoid crater sized potholes that seem to take forever to be repaired? Perhaps you didn't realize that Pittsburgh is dependent on it's citizens to report them to 311. As we know, many people can't / won't / don't take the time to report or even worse - the submission goes ignored time and time again. This is the solution where existing mobile city employees will proactively survey, report and (hopefully) repair our roads to make them safe again for bicyclists, pedestrians and drivers. With this intra-governmental database, city workers of all stripes can simply input the location and severity of said pothole directly to the city works department. We've already got the boots on the ground so let's go, Pittsburgh, with the Pothole Patrol!
