- An unknown resident in Jackson, Mississippi has planted a Christmas tree in a pothole to alert drivers to the road hazard.
- The tree was ‘planted’ in a Belhaven neighbourhood pothole with a sign which read: “Merry Christmas Belhaven. From our sinkhole to yours”.
- Residents appear to be pleased with the Christmas road ornament, with some saying they’ve had to replace several tires in recent years because of damage caused by potholes.
