Cane toad farting answer
AS YOUR editorial of October 13 suggested, along with all the wailing and screaming from the locals of Port Douglas about the highway intersection, this rejection of action is a travesty of major proportions.
Not only has it major safety implications - particularly for the local dickywackers who can’t read road signs and should not be driving anyway - but it once again is an attempt by the authorities to stifle tourism.
The more enlightened of us had already geared up with our folding chairs and eskies to toddle down and watch the proposed traffic lights change from red to green and take side bets on those locals who “miscalculated”.
The changing of the lights could have been a major boost to our local tourism industry, instead we are now back to the drawing board.
Suggestions please to the Gazette. To start the ball rolling I suggest a cane toad farting contest.
