Pothole Misfortune Leads To Holiday Spirit And A Road Repair

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. Kevin Martin was picking up dinner last weekend when he heard a loud sound under his car. He had driven over some potholes, which left him with four flat tires and a $600 repair bill. Frustrated, he found a fix. He went back to the road and filled the potholes with soil and these little Christmas trees. Seems the authorities took notice. The trees were removed, and the potholes were filled by Monday afternoon. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
