Black Mountain Peninsula to be closed at night

By Thumper 5 March 2008 23

In a move that clearly shows the greater regulation we now have in society, Chief Minister Jon Stanhope has issued a press release stating that Black Mountain Peninsula will be closed to vehicles overnight in a bid to ensure public safety and combat anti-social behaviour.

The popular picnic spot will be closed between 10pm and 7am during daylight saving months, and 8pm and 7am at other times.

Frankly I think it should be left open as it is public space and more regular police patrols used to combat the reported anti social behaviour. Locking it off seems to be a band aid solution but then again, I can’t remember the last time I went there so it really won’t affect me in any way, shape or form.

What’s Your opinion?

Pity about that, I used to like driving there naked at night and getting off. Wonder what Andrew Barr thinks about this?
