Small State, Big Potholes
Whether you're from Rhode Island or not, it's no small secret that Rhode Island has some of the worst roads in America. After each winter when the spring thaw occurs, the pothole reveal themselves and the state's motorists vent their anger at the disparaging state of the state's roadways.
Why are the potholes never filled is the common question among all of Rhode Island's motorists.
In March 2014, VIBCO president Karl Wadensten made an offer to the towns and cities of Rhode Island. He offered a free GR-1600 Pothole Patcher™ to each of the town's and municipalities to use to help fix their pothole problems.
Over half of the cities accepted the offer:
- North Providence
- Central Falls
- East Providence
- West Warwick
- East Greenwich
The response was overwhelmingly positive.
The Pothole Patcher™ is a welcome addition to the town's Department of Public Works teams and road repair teams.
