Pittsburgher outlining potholes with spray paint

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh officials says pothole-filled Warrington Avenue will be repaved by midsummer.

But one motorist fed up with potholes — and the damage he says they’ve done to his vehicles — is taking matters into his own hand: one holding a spray-paint can.

Dennis Muse tells WPXI-TV (http://bit.ly/16VWDjC ) that he’s going to continue spray-painting outlines on the road’s potholes until they’re fixes.

Muse says the potholes broke new shock absorbers on his truck and that another hole damaged his Jeep.

He says driving on the road makes drivers — quote — “feel like you are on a washboard or something.”

The 71-year-old resident says he’s hoping his spray-painted outlines will help others avoid the potholes and the damage they can cause.
