Waitaki Herald : April 27th 2016
2 WAITAKI HERALD, APRIL 27, 2016 YOURPAPER,YOURPLACE ALL DRAMA Visit the beautifully restored SPEED ISSUES WORRY The centre of Hampden is a great place to break a journey south or north. The picturesque town has some excellent places to grab a meal or a coffee, and a stunning beach just down the road as a rest spot. But the concerns of locals about the number of people now stopping in town, and the dangers they face in crossing the state highway to visit local businesses, including the well-appointed supermarket, are legitimate. Dropping the speed limit on State Highway 1 through the heart of town, or putting in a pedestrian crossing, are two possible protective measures, both of which make sense. The case of motorcyclist Bill Young, injured and facing a huge bill to fix his uninsured bike, after hitting a wandering sheep, has polarised opinion online.Many have chosen to criticise his lack of insurance, with others highlighting the fact the sheep was unsecured. Hopefully some commonground can be found on the issue.
