A 12-year-old boy in Michigan has decided that he should not wait for officials to fill the big potholes who roam a street near their home and instead get their hands dirty and fill the craters.
Monte Scott began filling potholes last week with a shovel and dirt from his backyard in Muskegon Heights after he got tired of the condition of the neighboring roads.
"I didn't want people crushed their cars as my mother did," he said WZZM TV. "If anyone were to drive down the street and hit a pothole, and then have to pay as $ 600-700 to get the car fixed, they would be crazy."

In the video, Monte can be seen filling in a pothole on the road that is larger than the base of his trash can.
"He just took it [fix the road]" says Trinell Scott to WZZM. "It's just the kind of kid he is. When he sees there is a problem or need, and he thinks he can fix it , he will try to fix it. "
video has been viewed more than 62,000 times since it was released on Wednesday.

Since the age of 12 has started last week, he filled 15 potholes around the family home. His mother said it only shows that her son is a good child, one of many in society.
"Everything is not bad about Muskegon Heights," she told WZZM.

not yet commented on the 12-year pursuit, but the question of crumbling roads across Michigan is something that struck a chord with the residents.
Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who in 2018 campaigned a bold promise to "fix damn roads" has proposed to nearly triple the state's per-gallon petrol tax to make the highest in the nation. Her plan is waiting for legislative approval according to FOX2.
