Letter: Our kids are precious

As a regular visitor to the Onewhero Golf Club I have recognised this SH22 problem for over fifteen years. No matter how often you drive this stretch of road, the hazard area comes up without much warning. It annoys me that the WDC spokesperson in speaking about their bureaucratic hoops that need jumping through, completely misses the point that action is needed this week not next year, before a tragic accident occurs. At the very least some ‘loud visibility’ white fencing should be installed this month, either side of the road and either side of the Pukekawa Village road section, with major SLOW DOWN warning signs. This inexpensive construction has been done at Mangatangi on all roads either side of the crossroads, and while it doesn’t stop the yobbos, most law abiding drivers respect and respond to the visible reminder by slowing down. Our kids are precious! R. Ford

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
