CHOCCY FROG BOLLARD PRIZE 5

Bollards are often irritating, and many of us have damaged our bikes or ourselves by hitting a bollard. After a cyclist was killed last year by hitting a bollard in Goolwa, BISA has decided enough is enough, and is campaigning to get dangerous and unreasonably obstructive bollards removed.
We aroused the “disappointment” of the Adelaide City Council with this campaign, so to be fair to them, we are trying to find one of their bollards that meets standards set for bollards. A midi-sized Haighs chocolate frog will go to someone who identifies such a bollard.
But if none is identified, the frog will go to the person who identifies the worst bollard anywhere in South Australia. More to the point, we will campaign to get it removed!
