North Korean citizens are being forced by authorities to donate materials and labor to fix potholes and cracks in roads. However, residents argue that it is unfair to make them sacrifice for maintenance on roads they will never use since private cars are generally not allowed in the country. Road maintenance was put on hold during the pandemic due to a lack of imported materials, but now the government is enthusiastic about restarting it. Citizens are required to donate materials such as gravel and old tires, but the supply of fuel needed for repairs is limited. Most of North Korea's roads are unpaved.
