World Pothole Day is taking place today (25 March 2015).

Following the success of National Pothole Day, an initiative that took place to raise awareness about the pothole problem in Britain in January this year, organisers Street Repairs received interest from all over the world.

The company said: “With this in mind we decided to embrace these countries after realising that potholes are a worldwide epidemic. Street Repairs is geared up towards the UK market at the moment, but with the right collaborations we could export our services worldwide.

“Many people have contacted us via Twitter and shown us how bad their country really is for potholes. Photos and locations have been given to us which provides a great insight into how the worldwide pothole epidemic is a major cause for concern. This is why we have decided to raise awareness of this serious issue with World Pothole Day.”

Street Repairs are the developers of an app that enables the public to report information about potholes and road maintenance problems.
