Park­ing prob­lems

BE­FORE some­one is hurt in an ac­ci­dent caused by po­lice turn­ing a blind eye to a ba­sic traf­fic in­fringe­ment.

When the prac­tice of cars be­ing parked on corners, as oc­curs daily in Ivory Cres, Tweed Heads, and sur­round­ing streets, was brought to the at­ten­tion of po­lice, they re­sponded by con­don­ing the prac­tice be­cause the driv­ers were hos­pi­tal em­ploy­ees.

Al­most daily res­i­dents see near-misses be­cause cars are parked il­le­gally, pre­sent­ing a dan­ger to mo­torists and pedes­tri­ans alike.

While the sup­port of our hos­pi­tal em­ploy­ees by po­lice is ad­mirable, it is also very dan­ger­ous.
