BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Potholes are an often unpleasant part of trips for many drivers.

It can take cities months to patch up the spots, and that’s usually not quick enough for even the most passionate drivers.

A Good Samaritan, Ron Chane, is on a mission in Jackson, Mississippi to fix every pot hole he comes across.

He only uses a bucket, a shovel, spray paint and asphalt from a reserve use by the state.

Chane also finds other unused asphalt around the city.

He says he’s fixed 101 potholes thus far.

Each of the potholes carries his mark, “citizen fixed.”

He says it serves as a reminder to city leaders of what needs to be done.
