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.
