Bam! Thud! Ouch – my bladder!
Clunk! Bam! Ouch – my neck!
Those were the sounds my car and I made as we drove ONE BLOCK on a busy Denver street and hit FIVE POTHOLES!
Sure, they don’t look very big in these pictures, but they are on EVERY block and are going to get bigger, deeper and ouch-ier as our freeze-thaw winter cycle continues.
What if …
You know that NSA agency who has promised not to spy on our phone calls, so now they’ve got all those under-utilized spy eyes?
You know those drones that farmers are already using to monitor single plants and single rows amid huge fields of crops? The same drones Jeff Bezos claims will soon deliver my Amazon orders to my front door?
What if those idle NSA Spy Boys collaborate with our street maintenance crew, and they create the Zap App?
You spot a pothole; zap the Zap App button on your phone; and a drone zooms in overhead to instantaneously shoot a laser dose of hot-mix asphalt goo, followed by a rapid blast of sealant, right into that pothole.
The Zap App – zappin’ potholes before they zap us.
