It's On In Tucson

Love is in the air–and in the streets–as SeeClickFix helps mend broken hearts in Tucson (like the one above). Less than a month after we designed a SeeClickFix Plus custom smart-phone app for the city, citizens and city workers have fallen for the service.

Tucson residents have already used it to report 83 repair requests. According to an article in the Arizona Daily Star, the service "is proving so popular that city work crews are devoting two days a week - Mondays and Fridays - to patching potholes reported in this manner."

The affection on behalf of the city workers makes sense. SCF is an inexpensive method for cash strapped road-repair offices to target the largest and most hazardous potholes first.

While the honeymoon period is not yet over, SCF hopes that the relationship with Tucson will grow and mature into something wonderful.
