The absence of bright white zebra lines on speed-breakers contributes to major road accidents, defeating the very purpose of their erection. Though the National Highway authority has banned speed-breakers on all national highways, this rule is not being followed. In some places, one could see speed-breakers standing like small walls which makes it uneasy for small cars to go through. I appeal to the Government to look into this problem at once.

Stray dog menace

In Paramakudi town stray dogs are wandering everywhere. In some places rabies-affected dogs are also seen loitering around. But the municipality has not taken steps to control the dog menace. Considering the danger posed by these rabies-affected dogs will the authorities take action to save the life of the public?

District control

The Sub-Registrar’s office of Paramakudi, Nainarkovil in Ramanathapuram district is under the control of the District Registrar of Sivaganga. Even after trifurcation, this office has not been under the District Registrar of Ramanathapuram. The public are suffering a lot due to this. Will the authorities take action?

Relay roads

Though the underground drainage project and Ramanathapuram combined drinking water scheme have been completed, haphazard closure of potholes dug for the schemes had become great inconvenience to the people and hampered the entire movement. The repeated appeals to the Commissioner of Ramanathapuram Municipality and District Administration to relay the roads did not evoke any response. To ensure safety of the road users the battered roads should be relaid.
