As Garry Fenton of Teven noted, Byron Shire Council included too many digits in this emergency phone number.

How many digits are in a phone number? This Byron Shire Council sticker located in the men’s urinal in the surf club at Main Beach to me is saying ‘IN CASE OF EMERGENCY – DON’T RING US’.

How many hands did this sticker pass through before it was displayed?

As for the roads, Council has done an excellent job of spray sealing all the bits that were OK and stopping where the potholes start. Well done – NOT !
