Potholes are a constant issue in Malaysia because it can be hard to get the local authorities to take action.

As a result, Malaysians have used several creative ways to mark or bring attention to dangerous spots on the road.

Some have used items such as a plastic chair or making a prayer circle around the gaping hole.

Not too long ago, Pahang State Legislative assemblyman for Teruntum Sim Chon Siang picked up a shovel himself to temporarily fix the potholes along Jalan Beserah and Jalan Jahi Junid.

The latest creative idea to cover up potholes was shared on the Kelantan State Facebook page.

Based on the pictures, it seems like someone in Pasir Mas, Kelantan covered up the giant pothole on the road with used clothes.

The caption stated that the road is Jalan Bukit Perah in the direction of the Batu Karang intersection and it’s under ADUN Bukit Tuku, Rantau Panjang.

These are pictures of the road at my kampung. It’s bad, admin [because we have to] cover the pothole with bundle clothes.

The person wrote in the caption of the post.

Just wait for elections

The comments section was lit with humour. Netizens joked that they just have to wait for elections to come around or get the attention of TV3 for the road to be repaired.

In other words, the issue needs to be made viral before any attention is given to it.

They also pointed out that it was a smart and creative idea to fill the potholes with clothes.

The pile of clothes seems to have helped even out the road surface too.

Wonder what other creative ideas the rakyat can come up with to fix potholes on the road.
