Tired of scraping the underbelly of your car on that same old annoying pothole down the street? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could simply point and click your way to getting it repaired? Good news—you can (in select cities)!

Thanks to startup SeeClickFix.com, citizens can connect to city officials by GPS tagging locations of graffiti, potholes, and crime. Once sent, the coordinates are submitted to the authorities so they can clean up the mess.
