rules with ‘a pinch of salt’.
My close encounter happened yesterday, at about 3pm as I was driving into the parking areas behind the Memorial Hall. I was driving along Talisman Drive to park behind theBNZ where I amable to get amobility park.
As I was almost level with the exit road on my left from behind the Memorial Hall, one car drove straight out in front of me! I stopped of course, then two more drivers followed.
A white line painted on the road at this exit means ‘Give Way’, it’s not just there for decoration!
Unfortunately I was not able to get the registration numbers, being too shocked at such a blatant disregard of the road rules. You three drivers know I am talking about you. Be a little more careful in future. HWESTON
I have lived in Katikati for 30 plus years. The most hospitable people I met over these years were horse riding and dog walking people down Tuapiro Point. I took the council to task with so much local support. Horse riders were being fined for riding.
After a meeting with the council and a formidable petition the council gave consent for us to continue to ride horses.
I realise the council wants to put this beautiful place on the map, but what about the people who live there, some for generations, riding, picnicking, playing games?
Teaching children to ride and enjoy the experience, dogs, horses and heaps of locals. Not the sort of pollution camper vans and freedom campers leave behind.
An animal lover, a local will not leave glass, cans and rubbish behind. We used to, at the end of an event, pick up poo, etc.
We have and continue to enjoy a place we call “our own”. Please don’t take this away from the local community.
I don’t live there anymore but can’t believe this is happening again.
A place worth saving for the people who live there year round.
They deserve this special place. LUBISSETT Waihi
