A group of Detroit-area residents fed up with the crummy condition of certain streets says their efforts to patch potholes have led to repairs on 41 residential blocks. They started filling potholes in July in the Detroit enclave of Hamtramck and were boosted by an online fundraising effort. The group dubbed the Hamtramck Guerrilla Road Crew laid down 36 tons of cold patch over several weekends.
