Julie Neighbourly Lead from Havelock North

I just read, in the Herald, that the government is planning on putting more cameras on the roads. That’s great, but wouldn’t more officers be better?!

Then there might be enough to stop some of the stupidest driving I have seen.
Like the young lady (?) driving with her dog on her lap, and one hand casually on its chest, as it hung out the driver window, as if she actually had any way of stopping it, should it decide to jump, or even as if she had any hope of controlling her vehicle in an emergency. ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND!

It’s a work/school morning, with kids and cars everywhere, and you are driving with a dog loose on your lap, and hanging out your window!

If this is you, or you know who it is, wise up. Pull your head in, and your dogs and put it in the back seat. If it won’t stay there, use a dog strap, available at any vets or pet store.

I wish I’d been able to get the licence plate number. That’s reckless endangerment, failing to control an animal in a vehicle, dangerous driving and pure stupidity, and a visit from a police officer could save both your, and anyone else’s lives on the road.

Fluoride Free Procession and Protest

Kevin Neighbourly Lead from Mahora

Thursday 18th April at 11am.
Many Hawkes Bay residents will have seen notices and petitions that Fluoride Free Hawkes Bay have circulated. Hastings District Council added hydrofluorosilicic acid to our water supply without informed consent, and without warnings placed at the Flaxmere and Havelock Nth water distribution points. This toxic chemical is harmful to many but especially pregnant mothers and bottle-fed babies.
Fluoride Free New Zealand and NZDoctorsSOS have filed an injunction in the high Court contesting this action.
On Thurs residents are urged to meet at the Hastings Civic Square, and then at 1130am sharp proceed through the Hastings CBD, arriving at HDCouncil about 12noon where professional speakers, local and throughout New Zealand, will explain the problems with this recognised poison.
Please share this public notice to whanau, family and friends.
