Rest Area 300m

Thursday, July 07, 2005

We used to have big problems with the odd steer wandering round in the Awakino Gorge. These days with better fencing, we rarely have problems. There are a couple of reasons for this. Until the late 90's farmers faced no liability for stock that wandered onto the road, even if their fences were virtually nonexistant. Now they are commonly liable if negligence causes an accident. The other reason is the value of the animal. These days that big breathing piece of steak is worth a lot of money.
Goats are the main problem now, but they are pretty quick and rarely get hit, though they often cause accidents as motorists try and avoid them.
