Crime Stoppers says that almost 90 per cent of Australians have received at least one nuisance or unwanted call every week
After several (at least two) attempts to get management to trim back the plants that are in the garden as you enter Woolworths from station street I feel compelled to write this letter.
Quite a few friends and customers have discussed this problem, which is the lack of visibility for drivers leaving the car park can’t see nor be seen by children and adults coming in along the footpath.
Even aware of the problem I have had a couple of close encounters and I can’t sit back until someone is seriously injured.
I just fixed a customer’s bicycle to the tune of $120 for just such an incident.
So I appeal to the management of Woolyie to replace the plants with ones that won’t grow over 20cm in height for the safety of all the public.
