Washing line injuries

Looking for number of people who have been injured by washing lines. Walking into the wire or hurting themselves on the wire etc.

Kainga Ora saying that people walk into washing lines all the time, therefore increasing the height of ALL washing lines to well over peoples heads. This means that most people can now not access their washing line.

Proving that low income people are not stupid and hopefully by using facts and stats will bring about postive change in Kainga Oras policy regarding washing lines
