Surf like a woman

Pedestrian safety has been negatively affectedd on Tincogan Street by ‘Give Way’ signs on the intersection with Stuart Street being turned around. Traffic has, as a result, sped up and crossing Tincogan Street at Stuart Street is now tricky, especially so for the infirm.

There is an easy, low-cost remedy though.

Residents in Tincogan Street whom I consulted about this road safety issue would like to see a 30km/h speed limit introduced, as well as have Tincogan Street’s new pedestrian crossing relocated to Stuart Street east.

Everybody is safe and happy this way, including Mullumbimby Automotive, who will be able to fully restore their renowned service to Mullumbimby motorists, through the abolition of current ‘No Stopping’ signs.
