Dangerous Zone: Uncovered Manhole

Dangerous Zone

It seems that the price of metal is peaking up again by looking at the tell tale sign such as missing manhole covers etc. The uncovered manhole poses threat to road users because of untoward accidents could happen at any time. Small children riding their bikes could easily get severe injury if they fall into the manhole. The location of the road with the missing manhole covers is at a popular site leading to a lake in Desa Ilmu.

However those who remove the manhole cover should realize that they are really a menace to the society and they should immediately return the manhole cover to its original position. I am afraid that the manhole cover had reached nearby scrapped metal dealers in exchange for a very tiny amount of money at the expense of the community at large.

People could die from their action! To me the thieves and the buyers, must receive capital punishment. I also feel that this problem should easily be solved because the manholes are normally marked and could easily be traced to the re-cycle yard. Anyways, this problem must be tackled quickly. As it is, we are living with it.

Selamat Tahun Baru.
