Your View: Copper Coast Highway teddy fence danger

I TRAVEL along the Copper Coast Highway to Kadina at least twice a week and on Tuesday, September 17, I was appalled to see a young mother taking pictures of three young children while walking along the narrow verge in front of the teddy bear fence.

One child appeared to have been a toddler and should have had her hand held.

If that child had run onto the road she could have been killed.

The sign warning motorists of the traffic hazard ahead is only advisory.

The toys along the fence and the sightseers who slow down are a menace to motorists and to the heavy vehicles which cannot stop as quickly as a car.

These teddies are deteriorating and are a potential pollution hazard.

The state Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure is responsible for the area beside the road, not the local council.

Move these toys or get rid of them and stop this nonsense about having bad luck if they are removed.
