Dangerous Wiring

Sightings of dangerous wiring like this are common in the older historic parts of Jeddah.   Faulty wiring has been the cause of tragic fires which have destroyed many of the old buildings.

I assume either there are no building codes (or electrical codes) or that they aren't enforced.

Hi Jerry -
There are probably building codes, but they are not enforced. It is seemingly left up to the construction supervisors or the building owners.
