Procrastination far superior to safety in Auckland.

The sign that indicates to motorist turning from Tamaki drive into Ngapipi Road that there is approaching cyclist is STILL FAULTY, it would not surprise me if my posting here a complete waste of time. This morning (Saturday 30th April) four cyclist when through, the sign did not light up, ten minutes later two more cyclist went through and once again the sign still did not light up. I think, if it can not be fixed or nobody wants to take any interest in getting it fixed, (1) there should be a sign under the existing sign “CYCLISTS APPROACHING WHEN FLASHING” also have another sign “INTERMITTENTLY FAULTY” (2) There also be a sign for the cyclist that the sign is intermittently faulty. From the back of the sign you can see if the sign is working, however I do not think this was done for the cyclist for which the safety was intended, as it is positioned at the top left corner, and trees growing on Tamaki drive make it hard for the cyclist to see it until they are almost in the “run over by oncoming motorist” position. Some of the branches from the trees are only about five metres above the footpath.

By the way I walked along there today (Sunday) in the wind. I did not stop to check like I have done with other days, but while walking in both directions I noticed it do not work, maybe this fault is getting worse.
