STREET DUST

IWOULD like to see Ade­long St in Gayn­dah with curb­ing on the build­ing side, the same as other homes on the street.

Plus in re­gards to a 50kmh speed sign, at a guess 70% of ve­hi­cles are driv­ing well in ex­cess of of the le­gal speed limit down this street. Please don't think this is a mat­ter for the po­lice as we have tried with no suc­cess. So if coun­cil place a 50kmh sign maybe a large per­cent­age of driv­ers would slow down.

Boyd Rd is also a race track with a high per­cent­age of ve­hi­cles do­ing dou­ble the speed limit. So I would put the gravel sec­tion high on the list to be a sealed one to keep the dust down.

Plus it is a dis­grace that you have a gravel road in the town area.

PETER TRANTER, GAYN­DAH BOYD RD A RACE TRACK

I HAVE brought this is­sue up be­fore to the po­lice and coun­cil about traf­fic do­ing twice the speed limit down Boyd Rd and on to the dirt road which causes so much dust and causes us to have sneezes reg­u­larly.

The dust is not too bad at 50kmh, but above that it is un­bear­able.

This whole area is a speed track, from Boyd Rd, to Kenny Rd and Ade­long St.

It needs speed bumps and large signs.

PAY WAVE

WE KNOW that money doesn’t grow on trees and these days plas­tic may be fan­tas­tic for cash­less con­ve­nience.

At the same time, these plas­tic cards may have a wealthy or bud­get type back­ground and when in the wrong hands prob­lems can re­sult.

Prob­lems in­clude of­fences be­ing com­mit­ted, which we may re­fer to as steal­ing or fraud.

Our fi­nal week of the Property Se­cu­rity Part­ner­ship is to raise aware­ness about fraud.

Fraud of­fences where unau­tho­rised trans­ac­tions are made us­ing an­other per­son’s bank or credit card are re­ported and in­ves­ti­gated by po­lice.

These of­fences of­ten oc­cur in re­tail, food, con­ve­nience and ser­vice sta­tions that are ev­ery day places peo­ple visit. As you can imag­ine, a num­ber of trans­ac­tions can oc­cur in a short space of time.

Wide Bay Bur­nett Dis­trict po­lice solved 26 fraud re­lated of­fences in­volv­ing credit cards be­tween Au­gust 1 and Novem­ber 8.

Con­sider re­view­ing the terms and use of payWave and con­tact your fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tion if needed.

Take the time to en­sure you keep your fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tion cards safe in a wal­let, purse, hand­bag or ap­pro­pri­ate ac­ces­sory and that they are with you in a se­cure lo­ca­tion at all times pos­si­ble, not left in a ve­hi­cle in sight for op­por­tunis­tic of­fend­ers.
