What are your thoughts on having them removed after a couple of months?
My thoughts are
- They can be a distraction to drivers. There is one particular one I noticed yesterday at Paekakariki with a flag. I have also seen some with those spinning windmills.
- They will forever be on the increase because people will continue to die on roads and there is not much that can be done about it.
- These memorials are normally found on the most dangerous parts of our roads. I have seen people stopping before in these places to have a look or put down flowers. Cars stopping in dangerous places.
Either way this is a very sensitive subject and I believe they do have their place. My question is for how long? Should they just be left?
