In efforts to regain my health and fitness I have taken to riding whenever I am inclined, often that is at night time and thus I am discovering much about mount barkers’ night time environment.
The following two videos reveal that the shared path along laratinga has several risky issues that I will utilise this particular blog to share with local council. All poles and signs within one metre of a shared pathway are breaches of policy/law I have been informed by a person implying they are an expert in these matters.
I note that an old high school buddy Dan once rode his bike into a pole along the torrens trail and was hospitilized whilst unconscious and only discovered his broken bike when later walking the journey from work to home after being discharged from the emergency room the following day. Thus it is clear that poles and signs upon, or near shared pathways are a literal and real risk to human welfare. Likewise exposed sharp concrete and exposed sharp steel bolts are also avoidable risks. Please cover all those sharp hard bits with soft padding, even utilising plant matter to filter the concrete storm drains and reduce risk of injury whilst maintaining appropriate environmental concerns. Thus any council that does not immediately remove all dangerous and/or illegal signs and poles upon their places they are responsible for is being negligent in duty of care to their citizens.
there is some swearing aussie vernacular in these videos I recall…
