No place here for ir­re­spon­si­ble acts

Pilbara News - - Opinion -

Sadly, our K-town has gone to rack and ruin.

There is an un­de­sir­able cul­ture of ir­re­spon­si­bil­ity emp­ty­ing its vile, pu­trid be­hav­iour among us.

I speak of those in the com­mu­nity who do not re­turn shop­ping trol­leys to the ap­pointed ar­eas and or fill them with their rub­bish and leave them in park­ing bays for oth­ers to deal with.

Then there are the halfwits who ac­cel­er­ate into the shop­ping cen­tre carpark with­out a thought of pedes­tri­ans, par­tic­u­larly moth­ers push­ing a trol­ley to their car with chil­dren fol­low­ing be­hind.

How would you ir­re­spon­si­ble, self-in­dulged mis­fits feel if you killed some­one in your car, by hit­ting a young child or their par­ent?

Also, there are mo­torists on our roads who think that they are the only driver on that par­tic­u­lar sec­tion of the road, trav­el­ling in the right lane in the blind spot of the ve­hi­cle in the left lane.

Kar­ratha has some of the worst driv­ers in re­gional Aus­tralia.

Mo­tor­cy­clists, in par­tic­u­lar, in ad­di­tion to For­mula 1 wannabe car driv­ers speed­ing past traf­fic as if try­ing to win a Grand Prix, ex­ud­ing ex­ces­sive ex­haust noise, louder than a prime mover slow­ing with the J-brake em­ployed.

Un­reg­is­tered mo­tor­cy­cles are grac­ing our res­i­den­tial streets with no lights on per­form­ing wheel stands with no re­spon­si­bil­ity for their ac­tions or thought­ful­ness for the fam­i­lies in that street.

Un­for­tu­nately, we have a tran­sient com­mu­nity where some of you out there have no re­spect for the ma­jor­ity of res­i­dents.

Please curb your pa­thetic an­ti­so­cial, mis­guided be­hav­iour and slither back un­der the rock you came from and never ad­mit to any­one that you graced K-town.

This com­mu­nity will not miss your pres­ence in the least.

In fact, you would make Kar­ratha a bet­ter town to re­side in with­out your pa­thetic be­hav­iour. Michael McDon­ald Kar­ratha
