WATCH: Oakland’s ‘Pothole Vigilantes’ in action

Bay Area

We first told you yesterday about the mysterious “Pothole Vigilantes” in Oakland taking on the city’s potholes in the dead of night. 

Mostly lauded by the community as unsung heroes alleviating the city’s problem with pesky potholes, the vigilantes themselves decided to share some personal photos and videos witth KRON4 showing them in action and to give you a glimpse of their covert operations. 

Here they are last night on the way to fixing more potholes.

In a GoFundMe page, the Pothole Vigilantes say they’re “creating a platform where frustrated community members can locate, donate, and fill the pesky pot hole issues… Imagine Uber meets potholes.”

“To fix the streets of your community and to provide jobs for those who need them most…. based on user demand potholes holes will be filled faster than ever before,” the page reads. 

Instagrammers for the most part have been apparently welcoming of the vigilantes, thanking them and leaving suggestions on where to go next.
