You appear to be quite tenacious and seem to have enough time on your hand

The funny thing about that intersection is that it is SAFER without the lights working (like it is now).

Happened three times in a month, and luckily, the third time, the truck hit the lamppost and knocked it over.

I wanted to make a PIL campaign on this, if I can find some like minded people. You make some publicity (like placing signboards at the intersections, saying that you are going to file a case). Then with sufficient warning, go out one day, collect evidence, file a few cases and make bigg publicity for that matter. Repeat it after a few days.

Thereafter stand with a camera at the intersection for a couple of days to scare people.

Should do the trick I guess.

Matter of fact I don't! That is why I want to get the morons who make my commute longer, and BP higher.

Being said that, I am sure no one is going to give a damn anyways.

Dileep, why dont you invest some time, energy and money into getting a semi authentic looking board done, which reads something like "this junction is under surveillance of cameras"?? I am not sure how effective this is going to be. Ought to work, is my guess.

They MAY do the need full.

I don't think it is any funny to be a laughing matter. It IS a very serious problem, at least here in Cochin. No one, including the cops is doing nothing
