To start with, our Bus Drivers might go on strike if they were denied the right to stop in the middle of the road like you see below: 

And our politicians and law-enforcers will lose the Right of Way privilege they enjoy so much ...
  

Our student unions will go on strike too if the school-kids they supposedly protect are not allowed aerobridge-like access to their school buses ...



Politician-turned-Environmentalists will cry hoarse when they cannot plant trees on the road no more, to check deforestation



The larger so-called reasons are scarcity of land (land is available in downtown Singapore, NY and Bangalore for motorways) and Bars (many of us in Kerala would rather do without wide roads if that means demolishing our precious highway bar stopover). Also, like those in the helm of affairs say "Kerala is a very peculiar state inside Shining India". God ONLY Save God's Own Country.

You and I have been doing the "GO SLOW" for years now! Ideally, these boards should be made permanent structures with a garden around them ... The good news though is that a concerned minister has randomly announced that all roads in the state will be tarred within a short period ... wish the efforts are here to stay ...

Update: The Roads are NOT here to stay! Ok! Tell us something new, ha?






And they keep comin' back ...
