Treadwell Lane in Weston is looking more like Tread-bad Path these days. The infamous potholes are wreaking havoc on that side of town, and the Weston Forum website reported that at least 31 people have expressed a desire to fix this problem.
Many attempts to solve this problem have not been sufficient, according to a Weston Forum site user. The post says, "These are filled many times a year ... but filling does no good as soon as water collects in them and freezes. The result is giant puddles full of broken asphalt which are flung into the air with each passing car."
Potholes pose risks of flat tires and damage to a vehicle's undercarriage. They also are a danger to cyclists. In London, Steve Wheen developed a novel approach of drawing attention to potholes by planting flowers in them, reports Wikipedia.com . This practice is known as guerilla gardening .
