There’s no doubt that there are times when driving down The Esplanade … especially the very narrow parts of the Esplanade here in Hervey Bay … are a challenge.
Two cars passing down around the Surf Club are a tight squeeze when other cars are parked on both sides of the road. Change one of those cars to a bus and and there can be just millimetres to spare.
Now let’s add in the new one metre rule for passing bikes and things become even harder … and not just in front of the Surf Club.
Something certainly needs to be done about parking and traffic flows along the Esplanade and it needs to be done sooner rather than later. Of course the Council won’t do anything unless enough people make a noise about the problem so it’s time to think about signing this online petition.
This is not about cars v bikes or how car drivers are impatient and inconsiderate and bike riders are a pain in the proverbial … so no comments along those lines will be published.
This is about getting Council to do something to save lives so please sign the petition.
