not that it would have made much difference here, but, there is no clamp where that cable enters the box. theres also no cover plate, no ground, no (visible GFCI)and it looks like theres also a few missing ko's.
although, on the bright side, maybe it will get rewired when it causes the pole to burn down.
Hello! and now with my two cents. I agree mx, cut the wires as high as whatever ladder you have handy and call the poco. Anyone else notice that they did atleast strap the nm within the 12 inches of the box. Is that right? I don't have my "bible" handy at the moment.
I would cut it off as high as possible at the pole ( 2.5 meters ) ensuring i wouldn't topple the pole over, and tape the ends and notify the POCO and electrical inspector.
It wouldn't be good to read in a local newspaper that a little kid got killed while playing with those bare wires or broken powerpoint, while knowinhg about it and not doing anything about it to make it safer for the time being.
