█ Message: Photo taken at 11:45 a.m. today. Note the DCC van is illegally parked on the wrong side of the road while the officer searches the park for law breaking dog owners. The fine for this is $40. It is a case of do as I say, not do as I do. Still, although hypocritical, on a cost benefit analysis maybe worth the risk as the dog off a lead [failing to control] fine is $200.

DCC: The lowdown on scooting

Today, a full page was taken out in the Otago Daily Times by your city council. An introduction to stripy “Strider” bearing a safety message for all children (or adults) who read the newspaper and ride scooters in the city, on footpaths and in playgrounds. (page 10)

Contact person (cuddly FAKE zebra?) is someone called Charlotte Flaherty, “DCC Safe and Sustainable Travel Co-ordinator”.

Could the council think up a more obtuse job title – or position – for a zoo animal?

Looks like the Spooks are a $5 million refuge for lost and mistreated animals. Did anyone tell Animal Control? Looks like some sort of ‘depart-mental’ double up in the Civic Centre.

A full page. Aimed primarily at children; and their parents. Scooting means you can chat to your friends, move independently, be fast, have fun, and be more active.

Wow. Transport to and from school is more than the car’s back seat? We’ve passed the age of cotton wool kids and parent taxis? What just happened there.
