Idiot Drivers

Postby scaber » Wed Oct 16, 2019 1:58 pm

I guess there's probably nothing we can do about these idiots that drove through the estuary at the Ashley River Mouth, and up onto the vehicle prohibited side of the spit, past a white baiter setting up her nets, and then over towards the seaward side, right through the beginning of the nesting area. Sadly they were side on to me and I didn't manage to even see a number plate (if they even had one)

I suggest you send the photos to the local authorities regardless of lack of number plate. It helps build a picture of whats going on, and they may even recognise it.

Yes, and get local media involved. Someone will be able to ID that vehicle - it's quite a distinctive species!
