When it comes to creativity, Bengaluru people surpasses all. From coming up with the idea of 'Paycm' posters to target (alleged) corrupt CM to targeting a pothole on Bengaluru road, they have got ideas for all.

Tired of the poor condition of roads in the Bengaluru, the residents geo-tagged a pothole on Google Maps, and within minutes, it started getting reviews as well.

A popular Twitter account, Nimo Tai (@Cryptic_Miind), shared screenshots of a landmark, a pothole, referred to as 'Abizer’s Pothole', in the Bellandur area of Bengaluru.

It also had some mock reviews from dedicated citizens on Google. 

Read the post below:

One of the reviews read, "Visited it during late night hours. It slowed me and asked me to tell a story. It was a scary experience. It did not let me go until I finished a story for it. Story of a corrupt government which had all resources but kept the public away from bare minimums."  

"Top tier pothole, great location very close to many grocery stores and all the good schools," another said.

"Best pothole I have seen so far. A true back-breaking experience, and also a testing ground for your car suspension," wrote another user.

The post has garnered over 12,000 likes and many retweets.

There were a few more comments on the above post.

Read the reactions of the Twitter users to the above post:

A user said that a great idea to pin it on Google. Could've named it after the local corporator or MLA/MP. Let them have their day on Google as well when their pothole tops search results.

He also suggested that they should start geotagging potholes in Mumbai too, as the Mumbaikars too faces immense problems related to potholes.

Potholes on Bengaluru roads cause major problems to the commuters.

Taking cognisance of the poor condition of roads in Bengaluru, the Karnataka High Court on Monday warned the BBMP to be serious about ensuring potholes are covered in the city.

"You convey the sense of urgency. Tell him (BBMP Commissioner) the seriousness of this situation and its urgency. If we are not shouting it does not mean we are not serious," the high court told BBMP.

The BBMP advocate informed the high court that a total of 2,010 potholes had been filled and only 221 potholes remained till September 14, 2022.
