    I do hope that in 2016 BELCO will do something about its wayward poles. The problem has been going on for years. The poles continue to roam the roadways causing motorists to collide with them.

    When was the last time the BPS reported a motorist “crashing” into a stationary pole?

    did the crossing pole look both ways before crossing?
