they are also raising funds from common people to make an app to report potholes.

Last month I had read an article about some spoof photographs by a few friends to protest against the pothole problem in Lithuania (check it out)

The conditions of our roads have gone from bad to worse. Even a well built car will begin to rattle if not driven with care on Mumbai's streets. However, after all these years, people have just grown used to it and have learnt to ignore these things and move on with their busy lives.

What i liked about fill in the potholes project is that these guys are thinking of a solution to develop an app to report and track potholes.

And crowd funding the app to develop it.
