Abandoned car traffic hazard

MOTORISTS on the Pacific Highway at Tweed Heads have raised questions regarding an abandoned vehicle, which has not been moved for more than a week.

The early 1990s grey Holden Commodore is parked on the nature strip south of the Tugun tunnel, with the rear sticking out into the right-hand lane.

The car, displaying a P-plate, has caused larger vehicles to swerve and left other motorists wondering why nothing has been done.

When questioned about the vehicle, Tweed police Sergeant Gerry Jardine said he had not been notified of the obstruction.

“Usually it is the council’s responsibility to remove the vehicle after it’s been there seven days,” said Sgt Jardine.
