On-street car sales an accident waiting to happen

Selling cars by the side of the road in Wagga appears to be governed by little more than Rafferty’s rules.

Would-be sellers have been booked on some streets, while Red Hill and Glenfield roads appear to be a free-for-all.

These two thoroughfares are both now virtual “pop up” car yards.

Red Hill Road in particular is a danger zone.

Last week there were literally scores of cars strewn along the roadside verge stretching all the way from Henwood Avenue to the Plumpton Road intersection.

The concern is the area is now an accident waiting to happen.

Due to the high volume of vehicles for sale, there are now serious issues with passing traffic.

Instead of concentrating on their driving, some motorists are being distracted by all the cars for sale.

As well, potential buyers are carelessly stepping into the path of oncoming vehicles while trying to gain a better vantage point of their proposed new purchase.

And the strange thing is, despite several vehicles being booked at the intersection of Edward and Moorong streets last year, no fines have been issued to the sellers on Red Hill and Glenfield roads.

Even in light of the safety concerns a Wagga City Council spokesman says no complaints have been lodged regarding the situation, so no action will be taken.

That decision would appear odd given the number of times this issue has been raised in the media in recent years.

Last week, there was even a front page story outlining the danger.

The spokesman also claimed an inspection of the area indicated that no obstruction was noted to either passing traffic or pedestrians by the parked vehicles.

Perhaps it will be just a case of let’s wait and see.
