Lubbock Hero Takes It Upon Himself To Fill In Pesky Potholes Around Town
A Lubbock resident has been going around town and filling in potholes. He's covered 500 of them over the past few weeks, and it doesn't look like he is slowing down any time soon. He's a saint! Why would someone go out of their way to fill in potholes for everyone in town? Sure, it's admirable, but man, that's a LOT of work. What a guy!
He's been posting on Facebook nearly every single day, asking people to tell him where there are more so that he can come to the rescue. Pretty awesome. Here's what he told us:
"Well, I work for the city Street Department so it’s kinda my job but I know that there are a butt load of potholes all over the city and some don’t get reported. So I took it upon myself to make the post if you know of any message me and I’ll get to it as soon as I can. Hitting a pothole will ruin your ride and fixing it costs more, I’ve hit some before so that situation sucks. In the past 2 1/2 weeks I’ve done close to 500 potholes give or take. I cover about 25/30 a day all types and sizes. So I just wanna help and get these potholes covered."
I've chosen to keep his name private, but if you have a pesky pothole that you'd like to mention, leave it in a comment below this article on our KFMX Facebook page. He just might be able to help you out.
Thanks for making Lubbock beautiful and saving our tires!
