Real City Matters

Join us for a series of panel discussions about the state of our city, and how we can have more honest, constructive conversations about its future.



Spotted: Pothole Warnings

These rogue road markings look like something out of Adam West–era Batman.


SPOTTED BY: Martin Reis

WHERE: Mostly in the Dovercourt Road area, around Queen Street West

WHEN: Over the past few weeks

WHAT: These handy, comic-book-style pothole warnings were spray-painted on west-end streets by the Urban Repair Squad, a group of pro-bicycle street-art vigilantes, whose work we’ve seen many times before. The idea here is to alert cyclists to dangerous road conditions, while also, presumably, letting City Hall know that its pothole crews have missed a few spots. The URS did this exact same thing in 2010.
