Placerville, CA -- Someone in Placerville, California is using spray paint, and some phallic symbols, to draw attention to some potholes on their street.

Neighbors who live near Wood Ridge Court tell FOX 40 the potholes along the street have gone unrepaired for a long time, but the graffiti just recently appeared.

"The potholes has been here for a long time, but the penis, that was just put there last night," neighbor Virginia Gabac said.

One spot had the phrase "what are taxes for."

Resident Geof Peabody said he knows the guy who did it, and said the guy did it out of frustration.

"Watched the kid who lives around here, he got a ticket because his front license plate fell off going through here, so they gave him a ticket for not having a front license plate," Peabody said.

Resident Lucas Aspenleiter said he doesn't think the city will do anything because it is a low-income neighborhood.

"Penalizing me for being poor, now I got to fix my car driving on this road, and I don't have enough money to do all that," he said.

City of Placerville work crews were in the neighborhood Tuesday to remove the graffiti. The potholes were still there.

The city manager's office would not comment on the potholes or graffiti.

    You just gotta love American ingenuity about the method of getting attention for a problem, and not to be outdone, the government swiftly responding to it and ignoring the original problem. Classic on all counts!
