Elections and Signs.

Iola from Awapuni

Hi Neighbours, today is the last day for nominations to for Councils, Hospital Boards and the mayoralty.
Sadly once again we have already seen some signs stolen which is not only annoying but is also expensive. The signs cost about $40 each.
Some years ago we had a problem with a young group of supporters of a particular candidate, removing and destroying signs of another candidate, the cost to that candidate was $2,000 and the Mayoralty. I would urge all neighbours to watch out for signs in your neighbourhood and to keep an eye on them for the prospective candidates.

Road rules, footpath rules e scooters and other zippy devices.

Iola from Awapuni

Before PNCC Councillors decide that e scooters and other zippy ways of riding on the footpath or the enlarged cycle ways are permitted, can we have a discussion about road and footpath safety.? Who is at fault if I am exiting my driveway, and a cyclist, e scooter or other on the footpath, crashes into me? Who is at fault if I am backing out of my driveway and a cyclist, e scooter on the footpath crashes in to me? Does the cyclist or e scooter rider, have insurance for any damage he/she may do to my car? Do cyclists and e scooter riders have householders insurance, which in some cases will compensate me for any damage the cyclist or e scooter rider does to my car? Do mobility scooters also have insurance to cover any damages? I do know that some householders insurance does cover damage to others done by children or dogs.
I think it is all very well to have these new ideas, if everyone has the assurances that safety responsibilty, is important and insurance is also important. Already we have a number of helmetless adults riding bikes on the footpaths and no controls or sanctions that can be enforced by the Council. What risk management plans have Council officers prepared regarding this matter.
