Last Thursday I swerved to avoid driving into someone who stepped onto the street without looking beyond her hands.
This would have been a non-event had I not been forced into the pothole I’d been carefully avoiding the preceding two weeks, leading to passers-by watching a 76-year-old change a ruined tyre offroad.
Council is considering spending about two million dollars to protect a relatively few Belongil landowners by putting rocks on the beach (thereby destroying the beach for the rest of us) while saving money by leaving the roads unsafe.
To this subsidy I add $180 for a replacement tyre.
