Something to consider about the bad condition of roads and services in towns and cities!

Good for the citizens to try to fix the roads in their neighborhood. This way many of them will be forced to shell out the money which they otherwise would be reluctant to pay in the form of municipal taxes which the municipality could spend on fixing roads adequately and doing other things.

I have been told that in many towns and cities in India, the municipal tax intake is quite low because a significant percentage of population (including businesses etc.) try their best, even cheat and lie about their incomes / earnings, to pay as little as possible for municipal taxes and this leads to the corporations and municipalities not being able to provide adequate service and do proper job due to lack of sufficient funds. Perhaps the tax overhaul is in order involving the municipalities before the things can improve!
