DOGS: Enforce the regulations
While cycling along the promenade in Whitley Bay, I couldn't help wishing I was one of the dog wardens from North Tyneside Council. I could have earned it Â£3,000 in five minutes.
As the council displays many signs that state dogs must be kept on a lead, otherwise incurring a £1,000 fine, why does it not boost its coffers by policing the rule, instead of raising council tax and resorting to the easier option of ticketing car users?
A dog running out of control, especially where there are young children, is always a risk. No one can be 100 per cent sure that their dog will not turn on a child, as we have learned many times. It is always better to eliminate the risk than take the risk.
