The Cardrona bra fence

When this cur­rent bra fence ap­peared, de­lib­er­ately seeded by a large num­ber of bras, the ap­par­ent owner was quoted as say­ing: ‘‘If any of these bras get stolen it would con­sti­tute theft’’, im­ply­ing that if any­body re­moved the bras, as hap­pened to a pre­vi­ous ver­sion they would be charged with theft.

It was good to see the owner was tak­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity for own­ing the un­der­wear.

I pre­sume that if the in­evitable does hap­pen and some­one is in­jured cross­ing the road and dam­age is caused to ve­hi­cles that the ap­par­ent owner will take re­spon­si­bil­ity for that too.

The coun­cil is be­ing weak on this.

The New Zealand Trans­port Agency does not al­low such fences to pro­lif­er­ate any­where in the coun­try for ob­vi­ous safety rea­sons, nor should the Queen­stown Lakes District Coun­cil Chris Tas­man

I have been mean­ing to let you know I have driven past the bra fence when there has been some dodgy driv­ing close to the fence.

I think if John Lee re­ally wants to keep that idea of a bra fence he should have it away from the main road . . . per­haps in his front yard.
