Pothole Repair

If you've traversed Halsema at this time of the year, this scene is familiar:

Now I read recently about ants being so altruistic to make their bodies the pothole covers. They use their bodies to plug potholes along the trail leading back to the nest, so that they can rush food to the developing young at cruising speed. A study by Scott Powell and Nigel Franks at the University of Bristol, reported in the June issue of Animal Behavior, shows that these living "plugs" improve the quality of the surface and increases traffic speed and the amount of prey delivered to the nest each day.

Which gives us a better idea: plug the potholes with DPWH officials and their politician cohorts.
