Want an AL pothole fixed? A Facebook post might be the answer

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Alliance for Alabama’s Infrastructure has a plan to improve the state’s pothole-ridden roads by doing something billions of people on the planet are already doing: logging onto Facebook.

How is that possible? Alliance leaders want people to post a photo or video of potholes or other poor road conditions on their Facebook page, 'FixMyRoadsAlabama'. Then, they'll take the posts and do the hard part, putting them in front of lawmakers and other decision-makers.
 
The hope is that the Alliance will be able to help solve problems, but the issue goes beyond making it an easier ride. It could help the economy, too.

"The economic impact could be, I mean, astronomical for Alabama’s infrastructure," explained the Alliance's Drew Harrell. "For every dollar we invest in our infrastructure we get a return of over $5, so allowing our businesses to move goods at a faster, higher rate through our state, both to and from our
business is critical. “

Harrell said to get as creative as you want with your pothole pictures or videos. Just make sure you stay safe while doing it.
