Sue Arnold, Ocean Shores.
On Sunday morning, a huge RV blocked the access to the Torakina car park, parking the vehicle so that it was impossible for cars to get out unless they reversed and went out park side, always difficult when the car park is full.
As usual, it was a vehicle with a Queensland number plate and a very rude woman inside who gave me the finger when I explained peacefully that her RV was completely blocking the access out of the car park.
On Monday, I watched another Queensland car park in the disabled parking spot outside the Brunswick post office. The driver was certainly not disabled other than an inability to read signs.
We are witnessing a regular weekend invasion by Queenslanders and its not difficult to tell when these guys are in town. There’s no place to park, the streets and beaches are trashed.
Why the hell Queenslanders can’t enjoy their own state instead of coming into Byron shire, who knows. But there really needs to be some kind of education campaign which lets these folks know that they are increasingly unwelcome because of their utter disrespect for the area, the community and in general.
Good manners is a foreign concept to the majority of these invaders.
