There are three main options for the behavior of the driver, faced with the fact of a bad road - pits, potholes, etc. First: do not pay attention and patiently overcome the hardships and hardships due to the fact that the country has a poor climate and slow roads. Second: swearing and cursing power, up to the highest realms. Third: take concrete actions aimed at putting the road in order.
Those who, by their mentality, are inclined to choose the third option or simply driven to fury by the roads, there are several ways to achieve positive changes. They, in turn, can be conditionally divided into three groups. They all boil down to attracting the attention of any authorities to a specific section of the road that needs repair.
pits on the roadSimilar to this pit in the spring are observed by motorists of almost the whole country. Similar to this pit in the spring are observed by motorists of almost the whole country. Related Materials Why are roads repaired during rain or snow? The authorities may not care what condition the roads are on, which they never personally drive. But they do not always care if higher authorities recognize about the pits located on their territory. And therefore, the required reaction in many cases is.
The first way, creative
It requires certain costs - time, money and effort. Different people came to him in different regions of the country. The most unconventional is the actions of activists in Yekaterinburg who painted portraits of the city’s rulers in the summer of 2012, right on the pits - the head of the administration, the chairman of the Duma, and the governor. The drawings were accompanied by quotes from the statements of the aforementioned persons: “All streets will be put in order”, “Reconstruction of roads is our main task”.
In several cases, citizens, most of whom remained unknown, painted pits along the contour with bright, noticeable colors. Similar actions in different years were held in Omsk, Samara, Volgograd, Saratov, Izhevsk, Tomsk, Voronezh, Krasnoyarsk, Tver, Karelia, Krasnodar Territory. That is, the method is quite popular for itself.
Campaign in Tomsk - bad roadsThe rally in Tomsk was quite organized and open: activists “painted” the pits during the day and attracted the attention of not only the authorities, but also the press, which is also useful.

There are examples when citizens tried to repair their roads on their own. A year ago, the inhabitants of the city of Revda organized an initiative group, bought a gravel dump truck, picked up shovels and poured holes on Herzen Street. In Barnaul and Chelyabinsk, dentists patched holes in asphalt with gypsum. In Murmansk - with pickles. In Yaroslavl, potatoes were planted in pits. Crosses were installed in pits in Ust-Ilimsk, in Izhevsk and Chelyabinsk - supplemented with signs with the inscription “Asphalt 2014–2015. Remember, we grieve. " Willingly or not, the authorities somehow had to react to all this - albeit not immediately and not very quickly.
The second way, electronic
In RuNet there are several sites that are engaged in monitoring the condition of roads and, accordingly, attracting the attention of authorities to identified defects. Behind each of these projects is some kind of social or political movement. For example, http://dorogi-onf.ru/ and http://dorogirussia.ru/ ("Map of the killed roads") created and oversees the All-Russian Popular Front, led by … however, it doesn’t matter. Among the methods of work - carrying out large-scale raids.
Dissatisfied road users are required to register on the site, indicate where the bad road is, attach a photo, describe the problem. Other projects work on a similar principle: RosYama (opposition to ONF, from the Anti-Corruption Fund), “Roads without problems” (under the auspices of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation and Public Councils under the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Transport). So far, only in test mode does the Safe Roads.rf portal operate, but it is already receiving citizens' signals from the field.
Information about the pits on Moscow roads can be sent to the site http://gorod.mos.ru/ - however, it is not specialized. In fact, this is a direct line with the metropolitan government, through which you can be informed in general about any disturbances, not just pits.

The effectiveness of these projects has not been studied, but all of them assure that the work is ongoing or has already been carried out, and they thoroughly report on the successes achieved. And all of them ultimately use the most official, prescribed by law, method of attracting the attention of the authorities, that is, paper.
The third way, paper
A great many departments and organizations are responsible for the state of roads to one degree or another. In any of them you can write and send an official appeal by mail - from a private person or from a group of persons (collective complaint). An incoming letter will inevitably be registered. And according to the law, authorities are required to send an answer within the agreed period of time (for state and municipal bodies - 30 days): your request has been accepted and considered. Which, however, does not mean that the road will be repaired in a 30-day period. With a certain probability, the clerk will inform you that "according to the plan of repair measures for such a period, this section …". But the fact is that the attention of the authorities was attracted, which was what was required to be achieved.

Where specifically to complain about bad roads? The three most obvious instances are the administration, the prosecutor's office, and the traffic police (district or city). The STSI is officially entrusted with the supervision of the state of all roads in the country. In case of violations, the traffic police is obliged to draw up and send an order to those who are directly responsible for bringing the road into compliance with the standards. However, it is one thing if the traffic police themselves have not “noticed” something for months, and quite another if the traffic police received a complaint from citizens. In some cases, bureaucracy is a useful thing.
Road repairThe ultimate goal is to visit these wonderful people in our pits. And even such a useless repair in many cases will solve the problem for a while.

The statement must indicate what exactly is wrong with the road, the mention of GOST R 50597–93, which, by the way, determines which pits are considered pits and which are not, will not hurt. And it’s useful to insert a phrase such as “the lack of proper road conditions puts our lives, health and property in real danger, and also makes it difficult in emergency cases to move ambulances, fire and other rescue services”.
Forest RoadIdeally, it should be something like this. And it is completely incomprehensible why this happens only in places and not for long, because we pay taxes everywhere and always.

In the same way, issues with marking, road lighting, erased zebras and too protracted repairs are resolved when the site is fenced and no work is being done. But just scolding the city hall, government and Rosavtodor, going around every pothole, is a pretty pointless exercise, because they still won't hear. True, if this makes it easier for us, then why not?
