Angry residents in Chumphon in the south of Thailand took matters into their own hands after a potholed road caused several accidents.
Motorists ended up in Chumphon Hospital after cars and bikes went into the big holes on a ten metre stretch of the Petchkasem Road in Wang Mai district, reported Manager Online.
So locals got banana and cassava plants and planted them in the road as a temporary warning.
Reporters were told that two accidents had occurred only last night and there had been several before. The section of road in question had been “finished” after repair less than a month ago.
Police were called and they did their bit by parking a vehicle with its lights flashing to warn motorists.
Then the contractor arrived and got an earful from the residents. A barrier and warning lights were then put in amid promises that the section would be properly repaired.
The contractor blamed subsidence and heavy use of the road.
