Salient. Victoria University of Wellington Students' Newspaper. Volume 31 Number 15, July 9, 1968
Sir—The painted steel coat-hanging pegs in the men's cloakroom of the Union Building are extremely dangerous in my opinion, and steps should be taken immediately to make them less dangerous. The light-coloured paint on them blends with the surrounding lighting, making them virtually invisible.
On two occasions in the last eight months. I have bumped my head on these projecting spikes, and my eyesight is normal. Persons of less than normal eyesight are placed in a most hazardous position, and it is only a matter of time before someone will lose an eye or otherwise seriously injure himself.
The danger could easily be lessed by the use of coloured paint, or by the placing of some kind of contrasting rubber buffer on these metal projections, Yours Faithfully,
