Mum’s standoff against council over school safety sign


Vehicle speed & safety concerns around St Albans School are in the news today – both the NZ Herald (see link) and Nor’West News (see pic). From the article: “Said Rachel Donaldson: “It’s really disappointing. I wouldn’t have thought the sign was so offensive that it would’ve caused someone to complain, especially with the political billboards, real estate agents and signs to quit smoking all over the place.” Rachel Donaldson has been at the helm of a campaign to bring attention to dangerous driving and red light running in the area. She has put up four other signs in the area, none of which have to be taken down. Innes Ward city councillor Pauline Cotter said she is “extremely disappointed” that the city council has ordered its removal. She was not aware of it until contacted by Nor’West News.”
