Geoff Upson of New Zealand calls himself a "road safety campaigner" and draws graffiti on roadways in an attempt to get the city to pave over it.

Geoff Upson has taken to social media and phallic drawings to bring attention to the poor conditions of roadways in his home province in New Zealand. Upson estimates that he has drawn over 100 neon green penises on roads that require significant repair.

"If they come out and fix the road then 100 per cent of my drawing will be removed," Upson told a local newspaper. "I’m about sick of calling Auckland transport" read Upson's Facebook page, "So what I’ve done is I’ve gone and drawn a great artist’s impression of a penis."

This isn't totally Upson's idea, in 2015 a British woman used the same tactic to bring attention to her decaying street. Auckland Transport, the city agency in charge of maintaining the roads have filed a complaint with the local police department.

"Offended!? Good!!! Maybe the road will get fixed soon!," Upson wrote in response on his Facebook page. Upson has also campaigned against the lowering of speed limits and drivers who don't follow the "keep left except to pass" unwritten rule of driving. Left, of course, because New Zealand is one of the only countries that still drives on the lefthand side of the road.

The hashtag #KEEPIT100 has spread across New Zealand with the help of Upson and local politicians as New Zealand police propose lower speed limits on some major roads in an effort to increase safety. "I say: raise it back to a safe and appropriate 100km/h and start retesting all drivers for basic competency." Upson wrote on his social media.
