Northern Rivers policeman accused of youth assault acquitted

Magistrate Michael Dakin has ordered a common assault charge against a former Byron-based policeman be dropped after an altercation involving a naked youth in Byron Bay three years ago.

I’ve identified a new conspiracy. It’s been created by Byron Council and the RMS who obviously sat down months ago to plot how to maximise traffic disruption as we approach school holidays, schoolies, festivals and Xmas holidays

And they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Getting into Byron is a nightmare. Kilometres of cones on both sides of the highway, more delays at the hospital site, more delays in town. The roadworks are never-ending.

If this chaos isn’t enough, try Brunswick, where Fingal Street is now a no-go zone, detours and roadblocks have similarly infested the township making for impossible parking and let’s not forget the noise and vibrations.

Seriously, is there any planning at all between the RMS and Byron Council? Does anyone in either bureaucracy have any idea how to plan traffic movements so residents and visitors can actually access Byron and Bruns?
