UN­TAMED ROAD

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

The coast road north of Palm Cove used to be a pleas­ant drive. Now it is a cir­cus.

Most driv­ers are in an un­nec­es­sary rush and if you don’t drive at the speed limit and over you get tail­gated and bul­lied.

The trucks, buses and tradies are the worst of­fend­ers. Trucks crash of­ten and it’s just a mat­ter of time be­fore a bus has a bad ac­ci­dent.

It’s a poor piece of road for such a fast and large vol­ume of traf­fic and out of the way for a reg­u­lar pa­trol by the high­way pa­trol. There’s a need to cut the speed limit across the board and en­force it. A lot of peo­ple are com­ing to the same con­clu­sion. The num­ber of deaths and ac­ci­dents is the proof, and it grows worse each year.
