The protruding metal chambers installed by a telecom firm at the road surface pose potential threats to both pedestrians and motorists in Kuvempunagar, Gokulam and may be even other places across the city.
There is all likelihood of children too getting injured if they step over these chambers while play at the road sides near their houses. These iron bars also endanger the lives of old people as they might not see those chambers while walking.
Moreover, vehicles like tractors, private buses and other big vehicles find it difficult to move over these metal chambers.
At night, the chances of collision between vehicles resulting in fatal accident is more, as these chambers are not clearly visible. Hope the authorities concerned will look into this and set right the problem before any untoward incident takes place.
