A Saint John man who filled in some potholes with gravel has been ordered by the city to undo the work and has been told he could be fined.
The city does not allow private citizens to do road work.
Defazio says Rice also told him some people had complained about possible damage from the gravel and city officials had expressed concerns about insurance claims.
“He said people were saying that a rock could be kicked up, or, you know, it could chip your windshield, it could scratch your paint, or whatever,” said Defazio. “I said, ‘Has it happened?’ He says, ‘Well, I don’t know if it’s happened, but it could happen.'”
