Hay­cock Ave

Central Leader - - Letters -

Re­gard­ing Hay­cock Ave (Driv­ers cross the line, Cen­tral Leader, Jan­uary 9), how many in­jury ac­ci­dents have occurred there?

In July 2006, I was the vic­tim of an in­jury ac­ci­dent when a car ran out of con­trol at the cor­ner of John Davis Rd and Hay­cock Ave.

Lo­cal res­i­dents who came to my aid told me of nu­mer­ous ac­ci­dents at that cor­ner.

De­spite re­peated pleas to the Auck­land City Coun­cil, noth­ing has been done.

Since that time the chevron speed and skid signs have been re­newed but ob­vi­ously the ac­ci­dents still oc­cur.

Split­ter is­lands may work, but poorly placed they could still cause more ve­hi­cles to hur­tle out of con­trol should they be struck.

Action is needed be­fore more in­juries or deaths and re­peated dam­age to ve­hi­cles and prop­erty. MAR­GARET OATEN
