  1. This is by no means the first terrible accident of it’s kind in the northern rivers. As I said before, our young people, mostly who do not own cars, and anyone who gets around without a car, has nowhere safe to walk. There is not even a consistent grassy strip next to the roads. Not even a safe strip for bike riders. Recently you ran an article about some contrived kitsch themed zone in Mullum, yet it has been glaringly obvious for decades, that people need to be able to walk and ride safely, so come on you bums in government, use your positions to get behind something useful for a change.
