I took this picture at International City, in the Spain Cluster.

These bare electrical wires are an invitation to danger for people living in the community, especially children.

These wires are lying in the middle of the road, and children spend a lot of time playing and walking around this area. If one of them should step on the wires, it could result in electrocution or worse.

The relevant authorities need to take immediate action. They need to ensure that such community areas are well-maintained and that jobs, like replacing electrical wires, are not left half done. Someone needs to take responsibility and bury these wires so that the public is free to walk around without having to worry about being hurt.
