Jersey Shore Hurricane News said,"We're very happy to announce the "New Jersey Pothole Map." In partnership with Vertices, a community mapping firm based in New Brunswick, just like our plow, power outage, and weather maps, you now have the power to report potholes by using an user friendly mobile app."
