QCOSTARICA – Once again, community residents tired of the bureaucracy and long wait for the Ministry of Public Works and Transport (MOPT) to do something, took it upon themselves to paint lines on the street.

This was unveiled on the “Gente Montes de Oca” Facebook page, posting photos of the community in action cross walk painting.

Pedestrians of Montes de Oca (San Pedro), near the Universidad Latina (Ulatina) can now cross safely.  PS. the footprints are on purpose, for style.

Some of the comments include, ” we need one here too!”, “well done”, “nothing political, community in action”, and “enough of the  laziness and ineffectiveness of the current government”.

Last year, residents of the Los Angeles community did the same thing, painting a cross walk at a high accident intersection. In that case the MOPT deleted the work.

Today (Tuesday),  MOPT engineers are expected to inspect the work and will decide if the cross walk is warranted and if it should let it be or erase it.

MOPT officials say they are concerned that the “non official” sign could confuse drivers and pedestrians and even cause accidents.

But, the Q playing devil’s advocate, are they (MOPT officials) more concerned about keeping their jobs? Imagine what would happen if communities all around the country started doing the same.
