In­ter­sec­tion no prob­lem

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

THERE is no prob­lem at the high­way in­ter­sec­tion turn-off, it’s just the peo­ple who use it.

At an av­er­age of four ve­hi­cles per hour how can a round­about, or God for­bid, traf­fic lights be affordable.

Nor would it fix the dra­mas, be­cause even if you put a po­lice­man there 24/7 some dick­y­whacker would have grief.

Ed­u­ca­tion could be the an­swer, but some peo­ple in Port are past that and in the main they are the prob­lem.

As for the he­li­copter pilot who crashed there, I hope his skill up in the air is bet­ter.

The two hys­ter­i­cal Gazette re­porters who wrote the orig­i­nal story would have dif­fi­culty with han­dling a real drama.

As for the in­jured French cou­ple, aren’t they go­ing to be good tourist am­bas­sadors when they get back home hav­ing been cleaned up by some lo­cal who doesn’t yet know the road net­work in this ma­jor me­trop­o­lis.

Fi­nally, the ques­tion asked of outof-town­ers last week on the need for a round­about is akin to ask­ing for­eign­ers vis­it­ing Lon­don if they think there is a traf­fic prob­lem in that city.

Come on Port Dou­glas, or along with the pa­thetic lo­cal ob­jec­tions to the la­goon and Mar­riner projects we are go­ing to be seen as Hicksville.
