Not wishing to go off topic either, but here's one for your list. May I also suggest that you start a new topic for this list?

 

As has already been mentioned elsewhere, the proper enforcement of a 30mph speed limit on Richmond Hill could have achieved better results a lot more cheaply.

(Can't remember if we had a thread for this latest attempt at this already, but also interesting to see that this idea has been around for a while now.)

Whereas most of us see this as a problem, Douglas Borough Council could use this as an opportunity

 

Buying a fleet of pooper scooters, employing riders, pictures in the paper of the new fleet, drinks & nibbles in the Mayor's Chambers

 

It's not quite on the scale of the unnecessary £1.5 million for LED streetlights (decision approved)or the ludicrous £11 million car park/library/retail glass thing at Cambrian place ( thankfully shelved)

 

Come on Mr Christian, this is just the kind of thing to further burden the ratepayers with

What are they going to do when they're Dna profiling the shots and realise a good 30% aren't dog shits, but are in fact human shits

But they won't be as that doesn't happen. We're not Nigeria or Kenya.

If I see someone I don't like putting their dog's bagged shit in the bin I could fetch it back out, open it up and sling it on the pavement so they get fined. I wouldn't but it could happen.

It is quite simple a zero shitting policy...

 

All dog owners should have to have a garden or access to one.

 

Any dogs found defecating on the street should be shot.

 

Quite simple and if the owner gets a new one the three strikes and you are out policy should apply.

 

On the next boat.

Dog faeces in the street is a problem that often occurs in the same area time and again.

This is also often linked to dark nights and bad weather.

 

Mos residents in areas where this is a problem would be quite happy to have a portable cctv camera in their window until the responsible owner is either caught or stops leaving the faeces there.

 

If caught the punishment should start with something like 100 hours community service cleaning public areas not a £50 fine.

 

One other point - at least you stand a chance of seeing dog mess in the street, the cat shit in your garden however!

 

Many of the most vocal people about dog mess are cat owners who are quite content to kick their cats out of the house most of the time where they are free to shit and piss everywhere and never do it in their own garden.

 

As they are not licienced why can we not treat unaccompanied cats as vermin and eradicate any that come into our gardens?

Not the dog's fault though, is it ? (I'm not even a dog lover)

The "owner" needs to be punished, not the pet.
