If you’re worried America’s notoriously pothole-ridden streets will crumble unchecked after the recent $1.5 trillion tax cut, just order a pizza and hope for the best. Domino’s, it what is apparently much more of a publicity stunt than an infrastructure initiative (yet is still more innovative than the typical state highway department) has revealed a “paving for pizza” partnership to repair potholes in towns where it sells pizzas.

“Potholes, cracks and bumps in the road can cause irreversible damage to your pizza during the drive home from Domino’s,’’ the eatery warns. “We can’t stand by and let your cheese slide to one side, your toppings get un-topped, or your boxes flippled. So we’re helping to pave in towns across the country save your good pizza from these bad roads.”

This could be a very long running ad campaign. According to the National Surface Transportation Policy and Revenue Study Commission of the U.S. Congress, it will require spending $185 billion every year for the next 50 years just to keep America’s roads and bridges from getting worse than they are now. The country is collectively spending $68 billion annually on road and bridge repairs, or a bit more than a third of what’s needed.

The Domino’s initiative isn’t promising to fill the gap (so to speak). A quick tally of the stats on the company’s site reveals it’s filled 203 potholes, so far, in four cities of varying sizes. Athens, Ga., received by far the most asphalt with 150 filled potholes. In car-crazed Southern California, the Paving for Pizza initiative has filled five potholes, all in Burbank.

The program is accepting nominations for towns to assist. The nomination forms makes no guarantees about road work ever getting done (which makes Domino’s no worse than the government on this topic) but does allow for the purchase of a large carry-out pizzas for $7.99.

  1. “One thing I want to say is always that car insurance canceling is a dreaded experience and if you are doing the suitable things being a driver you will not get one. A number of people do have the notice that they’ve been officially dumped by their insurance company and many have to struggle to get extra insurance after having a cancellation. Cheap auto insurance rates tend to be hard to get after the cancellation. Having the main reasons with regard to auto insurance cancellations can help car owners prevent completely losing in one of the most vital privileges available. Thanks for the tips shared by your blog.”

  3. “Great blog post. Some tips i would like to bring up is that laptop memory should be purchased but if your computer cannot cope with anything you do by using it. One can install two RAM memory boards having 1GB each, as an example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should always check the car maker’s documentation for the PC to make sure what type of memory space is needed.”
