Spanish Potholes Spread Worldwide
Otrobache.es is a Spanish pothole reporting website that seems to have taken off worldwide.
Otrobache.es uses Google Maps to allow users to report and view reported potholes. The application began life as way for Madrid road users to report problems with the city's roads but the application has proved so popular that it is now being used around the world.
Otrobache.es is just the latest in a fine tradition of pothole reporting websites. In the UK you can report potholes to the FillThatHole website. In the US SeeClickFix allows users to report all sorts of non-emergency problems (including potholes). In Pune, India you can also report road conditions to Better Pune.
