Hoboken Pothole Killers
Hoboken Pothole Killers – a waste?
Have you seen these Hoboken pothole filling machines? They’re called “pothole killers” and this truck drives around, fills holes up with tarry rocks, drives over it once, then drives away.
As long as I can remember, potholes used to be filled with hot asphalt, which was shoveled into the hole – then PAVED over with some kind of steam rolling machine (sometimes portable). Seemed to last quite a while.
Don’t you think this “easy way” they do it now is just barely above “bare minimum?”
Plus, these rocks were all over the place, making the whole are a giant mess (probably messing up cars in the process).
The effort level for “doing things right” these days is anemic.
Conceived and launched in 2006, the original Hoboken Photo of the Day category contains thousands of pictures and includes many other subsections, including Drunk Bread Crumbs, HDR Photography, Hoboken Digital Art, and more.
We feel that by photo-documenting the city of Hoboken season after season, “a picture is worth 1000 words,” and can tell a myriad of stories encompassing the good, bad and the ugly contained within the mile-square. Our constantly-evolving way of maintaining a historical archive of memories and sights.
