Here's my idea! 

If you've noticed, there are a lot of construction works that is currently going on around our neighborhood, in towns and along highways.It's a good thing because the infrastructure of the country is improving. We've got better roads, Better pipelines, Better highways, etc. However, the construction of infrastructure can sometimes cause fatality. A few months ago,someone was killed when the scaffolding slid of the construction site right onto the roof of his car.

I write this with personal experience. Do you know the highway passing Subang Jaya? After the Batu Tiga toll? Yeap, On Federal Highway opposite Empire and the KTM station. They've been doing road works. I am not sure if they building another Flyover or the MRT. BUT Those plastic dividers are very dangerous. I was on my way back from PJ once, and it was raining. As I was approaching that part of the highway, the plastic dividers begin to fall. YES! Like dominos , the only diffrence was it was falling to the side. I managed to cut to the next lane and I was lucky there were no cars behind me. Seriously that was scary. 

Here are some of pictures to show you the type dividers that I mentioned above.  This is not in Subang but along Shah Alam. It's just like the ones in Subang.

Can you see how flimsy it is? Doesn't look solid enough!

This is not safe! The dividers should be higher and more solid! Can you Imagine if the scaffolding just felt over? It happened before right!

Now, this one is near my neighborhood!. It's been going on for almost a month. How can it be a safer city when every time I pass this place I fear that it will just fall right in front of me? Something that seems good now seems hazardous to the community.

SO , I came up with this idea! Living in a safer city does not necessarily mean that we only live in an environment without robbers breaking into houses or people running wild ! Haha , A safer city also means that we can drive without worrying bout our safety on the road caused by construction sites that don't drive! Haha!


Together we can make a difference! DO your part now!
