    Default Saved $$

    Saved $$ by putting winter tires on last year. Saved myself a dent in my summer rims, much cheaper to change the winter rim.

    They need to fix the potholes in this city. They need to do a much better job than what they have been doing, and send someone driving around this city and logging all the potholes in the roads and putting them on a public map, so citizens can see them on a map.

    If they can use an automatic scanning system for license plate stickers while driving around, they should be able to scan for potholes when driving around.

    So you're looking for a device that can scan and recognize empty, vacuous, large holes that serve no purpose whatsoever?

    Could we call it the Hillary Clinton Scanner? The Nancy Pelosi App? The Michael Moore Machine?

    With AI they can scan a surface and it can define all the potholes automatically.
    We can map it and everyone can see the progress of the repairs.

    It's like face recognition software, or finger print scanners.

    We are safe for a few months now once the potholes freeze over, problem solved.

    I believe that was a rhetorical query, Hans.
