CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 23 March 1939
Dear Sir, I have followed with interest the controversy between the 'Bor- ough Council,. and the Ratepayers and Citizens' Association, regard- ing .breaches of by-laws by juven- ile cyclists. I am of the opinion that the -Association should be congratulated oh their determined attempt' they, are making to have' a much abused ''by-law enforced. As a parent myself > I have lectur- ed my children on breaches of cyclists, and if they -offended-now,-' would not want any preferential treatment meted out to them by selection by the Council, in other, words, I. would sooner see them admonished by the juvenile court, if they disobeyed me, than see them perhaps mai.ned for life/ or be < the cause of some motorist getting up, -trying to avoid them. Easy Aces says in the last issue of the "Leader" that the policy of warning, etc., "should apply to: adults as well. It seems incredible, that Easy Aces would -have the audacity publicly to suggest that after all the prop...
