Dear Editor,

The level of vandalism in Honiara needs to be addressed with the full force of the law.

We cannot go on expecting handouts in every aspect. Utilities such as public telephones are there for a purpose and members of the public must be made to realize that someone had paid money to have such facilities easily accessible to everyone for their use, particularly in emergencies.

Public telephones can save lives. Those who go on destroying public telephones are indirectly denying a potential life-saving gadget made available to members of the public.

It is not hard to identify who's responsible for destroying such a public amenity.

May I suggest that telekom in consultation with the police set up a phone line dedicated to dobbing in those destroying public phones?
