Rogers cable line hanging out of box and into my trees
Its funny how fast they're handing a ticket when a car is left on the road overnight....

+1, What probably happened is that when they were laying thier new cable, they cut the new lines laid by the previous contract crew. The subcontractors are paid piece meal, so more jobs per day means more money. . The contractors want to work as fast as possible so they don't care if they accidently "cut" someone else's phone or cable TV wiring.Cheap Cat wrote: ↑Sep 4th, 2008 11:34 amI live in a condo townhouse complex in Brampton and this has been an ongoing problem for us. You finally get them to bury the cables and a few months later, they're back in the trees. I really don't know what they are doing here. We've had them show up and start ripping up lawns and cutting driveways to bury cables. They wanted us to give them blanket consent to come in and do what they wanted but we refused. They use subcontractors which is also part of the problem. Some do a good job, most don't and cause alot of damage. ...

Since that leaves your neighbor, who is basically an innocent bystander, without cable, internet, etc....its not exactly a neighborly thing to do.

In my case, the tree is in the middle of my property, and the neighbors wire, goes to it, and wraps around at the top of it, and then proceeds out to the street.gman wrote: ↑Sep 4th, 2008 12:34 pmI assume you mean the branch of your tree crossed the property line and the cable is in fact on top of his property. In that case, there is nothing you can do unless your neighbour wants to do something.
If the cable crosses your property, call Rogers and tell them you are going to cut the cable if they are not going to fix it by N days.
My colleague had a cable went on top of her roof. She called and told them what I said. They fixed that pretty fast.
BTW, there is no safety issue for a TV cable hanging there. At least, I don't know what safety issue you referred to.
