Faulty traffic signals

AFTER the recent heavy rains in Karachi, almost all traffic signals in the DHA have stopped working. As a result, there is complete chaos, since every driver in Pakistan thinks he is above the law and refuses to stop his vehicle, unless there is a traffic policeman at the signals.
However, traffic policemen are seen only near the houses of VIPs like Dr Zulfikar Mirza, where police mobiles have been deployed in greater numbers after the recent bomb blast.
The road leading to his house has been blocked by concrete boulders. I know that there is very little chance of anyone taking any action, but perhaps there is someone in this government whose conscience will be stirred by reading this and all traffic signals will be repaired.
