Rome residents cover potholes following death of a person due to poor conditions of city’s roads

Reading Time: 1 minute

BBC: Locals in Rome have been covering the city’s infamous potholes with spray paint in response to an appeal from a woman whose daughter died in an accident reportedly linked to the poor condition of Rome’s roads.

The ‘basta buche’ (enough holes) appeal was launched by mother Graziella Viviano, whose 26-year-old daughter died in a motorcycle accident Viviano says was caused by the poor road conditions.

On social media and in an open letter published in the Corriere della Sera, she called on people to use spray paint to draw attention to hazards such as potholes and tree roots — both to alert road users to potential dangers and to push city authorities to act.
