MUSKEGON, Mich. (FOX 13) - A 12-year-old who was so fed up with the potholes in his neighborhood has taken matters into his own hands.
Monte Scott grabbed his shovel and a giant garbage can full of dirt and began filling the holes in his Muskegon, Michigan neighborhood himself.
"I didn't want people, like, messing up their cars like my mom did because, if somebody were to drive down the street, hit a pothole, mess up their car, spend like six, seven hundred dollars on their car to get it fixed, they would be mad," said Scott.
His mother, Trinell Scott, says that Monte is always trying to help. "He didn't ask anybody to do them," said Trinell Scott. "He just took it upon himself to do it and that's just the type of kid he is. When he sees there's a problem or a need and he thinks he can fix it, he'll try to fix it."
So far, the 12-year-old has filled more than a dozen potholes near his family's house. There's no word on what or if the city plans to do anything to help.
