Rude awak­en­ing

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor,

I would like to see sta­tis­tics to jus­tify Graeme Hansen’s views [KMN, Fe­bru­ary 28] that train horns are nec­es­sary.

As I am likely to be rudely awak­ened at 5.47am or there­abouts, I may sit at Lin­den Av­enue cross­ing and count the num­ber of peo­ple with earplugs, etc., who can­not see or hear a rum­bling, ground-vi­brat­ing lo­co­mo­tive with flash­ing head­lights ap­proach­ing.

(It’s dark at this hour. Oth­ers are wel­come to join me with photo-phones.)

Per­haps C Niven would be kind enough to sup­ply the bu­reau­crat’s home phone num­ber so that we could ring and say ‘‘good morn­ing’’?

DIANE SCOTT, Lin­den
