Malaysia's Potholes

Recently, one of the local newspaper reported that a old senior died after falling into a flooded pothole in Puchong. 3 hours later, Local City-Hall covered the pothole immediately. Why the fark did they cover the pothole only after a death had occured?

Local municipal councils are always like that. When they get complaints on road potholes, they will dilly-dally and wait for an auspicious day to carry out the work, the public will have to wait for weeks, months or even years to get that stupid hole fixed.

But from the report that I've read, if you want to speed things up, all you have to do is to die there and the pothole will be fixed the next day.

Empty promises are just not good enough. People died because of some authorities inability to handle simple complains.
