  1. No surprise there. That entire corner is deadly, with pedestrians having to rely on the good nature and common sense of drivers to get across the road. With all the money that tourism brings in, it’s time to erect traffic lights on that strip.

    • Traffic lights in Byron Bay Jon – wash your mouth out with hand made naturally perfumed soap Jon. Just some decent street lights around the Bay would be a radical change, as would making people put lights on the bikes that whizz in front of you – driving there takes me back to living in the third world.
