Portable fake pothole

I was waiting at a bus stop, watching a long line of cars skirt one small pothole in the road. Luckily, it also meant that they'd been avoiding a line of standing water that lay next to the bus stop.

The idea is to have a flat plastic mat, painted in the 3D style, to look like a pothole. Throw it out in the road, next to puddles, possibly with a string attached for pulling it back.

       Already in the catalog of the ACME corporation, along with fake stick-on tunnel portals, giant catapults, and spring-soled running boots.   

       However, it appears that the Roadrunner is still at large ...

       I was tired...and read that as portable fake porthole, a boon to sailors and passengers alike?

       City might counter with a mat that looks like good road to cover their holes.   

       --- A graphic showing car or bike or person in a pothole might keep most from driving through.

       You're right, a 100% lack of umbrella-ness..

       This is much better than the potable fake porthole.
