Masked Vigilantes Are Repairing A City’s Potholes – And Officials Are Upset

Residents of one American city can thank an unlikely group of “masked superheroes” for road repairs.

The masked, self-described anarchists in Portland, Ore., are dressed as ninjas and filling potholes while winning popular gratitude, KGW-TV reported. Their efforts have earned the praise of residents and opposition from the Oregon city’s government.

“Successful preliminary action today. We patched five potholes on SE Salmon, between 37th and 39th,” the group, known as Portland Anarchist Road Care, posted on its Facebook page recently.

Masked Vigilantes Are Repairing A City’s Potholes – And Officials Are Upset But city officials want the group to stop.

“It’s not safe for them because there is traffic on the streets and they can potentially put themselves at risk and the public at risk if the repair isn’t done properly,” Dylan Rivera of the Portland Bureau of Transportation said of the anarchists.

Some citizens, though, love what the vigilantes are doing. The anarchists post pictures of themselves, masked, repairing potholes.

“They don’t need to be masked,” resident Tom Satchell said of the anarchists. “They’re doing a great job.”

Rivera said the city has fixed more than 900 potholes so far this year and has crews out working on the problem on every sunny day.

  • If the city is so damn pissed off then maybe they ought to actually get busy and do it themselves! They’re not worried about the “vigilantes” safety…they’re upset about being showed up for their inability. I used to live in Oregon and every government or city worker usually takes on a “supervisor” position. You can easily spot them…the ones all grouped around a hole and just scratching their heads. How many times have I passed “roadwork ahead” signs and NOBODYS there. They post the signs at 6:00 in the morning, then go on coffee and lunch break till 6:00 in the evening. No work done. So yeah, leave the vigilantes alone!!! At least they’re getting it done. Amen to you guys. Great job. The city should put you on payroll. Lol
