What can we do about the doggy do ?

We love dogs. Don’t get me wrong.
I grew up with a Golden Retriever , Benny, my childhood companion. I fed him. Took him for daily walks and runs. And I trained him to ; sit , wait, shake hands, roll-over, fetch, chase the neighbor’s cat and most importantly where to ‘go about his business’ and how to cover it up when he’s done.

The Green is the ideal place to live for dog owners. Plenty of space, lots of grassy areas for a dog to run around in and get exercise.

Humans and their children also like to run around the Green , or go for bike rides , walks , exercise.

There is nothing worse when you are out for a walk, than the sight and smell of a steaming pile of doggy do. Lately on my bike ride around the Green, it’s becoming a bit of a mine field – Dog crap is everywhere – and no one seems to want to clean it up. well you can’t blame the street sweepers – I wouldn’t touch it even if you paid me either – because IT’S NOT MY DOG !!!
Dog Owners – please – train your dog to ‘go’ in an area that is away from public walkways – out of sight and smelling distance from other people’s gardens and children’s play areas.
When your dog has done his deed, you can teach him to scratch and cover it with dirt and grass – or do as my mum does – carry a small spade and gloves with you when you go for a walk.

Keep the Green Clean !

Independance Day on The Green

Of Roads , Roundabouts and Responsibility.

One of the best things about living on The Green is morning walks and bike riding.
The ring road that connects all the clusters in The Green is lined with large lush green trees. It goes over two bridges and affords really nice ‘back to nature’ views of rivers and a small man-made lake. There are a couple of waterfalls and a lot of areas for people to sit and enjoy a bit of serenity , away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

That is as long as there are no ‘rev-heads’ about, who for some reason ignore the residential area speed limit, and seem to think The Green can be used as a race track for ‘balapan’.

The Green is a RESIDENTIAL COMPLEX. Families live here. Young Children play here. Grandparents exercise here. There is a 20 Kilometer per hour SPEED LIMIT for ALL ROADS on The Green.

Traffic Signs are not there for decoration. They tell motorists what the legal speed limit in the area is. These Speed Limits are there for a reason ; This is not a Jalan Toll. This is a Residential Area.

Some signs are easier to see than others.

On Sunday a couple were apparently returning to The Green from their Lebaran holidays.
Just 100 meters from a 20km/h road sign , their Kijang managed to plough into a road-side lamppost , knocking it over and spinning 180 degrees into a stop.

The speed of the car was fast enough to uproot the lamppost cables and all. A further 100 meters from the lamppost is a very large Sengon tree. Had the couple hit the tree, the accident would have been fatal.

Why do people need to drive so fast !!!  What is the big hurry !!! You are through the gates of The Green , you are home , safe, your family is waiting.
WHY DO YOU HAVE TO DRIVE LIKE A BRAINLESS MANIAC !!!?
We have chosen to live in a community residence. We pay good money for IPL and for Security , so that we may live in a safe environment.
Please respect the rights of those that you have chosen to live with. The Speed Limit is the limit for EVERYBODY , whether you drive a truck, motorbike , car or…..
