Dear Hillary,

Have you seen all the pedestrian traffic lights on Beach Road?  There are 16 of them and nobody paid a blind bit of notice to them, so now they have chaps with flags complete with a whistle who jump out in front of the speeding minibuses.  I have checked the flag material and it is plastic and no match for the vehicles.  Pedestrian crossings are all very fine, but 16 on Beach Road?

Dear James,

When they first went up outside the office, I thought they had done it just for me and I was thrilled.  Then I found they were everywhere!  Unfortunately James, my column is not going to take your case very far.  Being threatened by a baht bus belting through the red lights really isn’t the stuff of heartbroken lovers, but I do understand your annoyance.  Instead of protecting the tourists, who will imagine that the traffic will stop, it puts them more in danger.  Send your letter to City Hall, my Petal.
