Calls to Stop Abuse against Road Construction Workers

Tweed Shire Council has once again appealed to motorists to remain calm if roadworks happen to delay their journey following the third reported incident of motorist aggression and assault of road workers in the area this year.

The latest report to the police involved a driver who drove at and hit a traffic controller in May.

In April a motorist drove at and nudged a traffic controller on Kyogle Road and in March a motorist stopped and verbally abused a traffic controller on Tweed Valley Way.

These incidents are being addressed by the police but it’s obvious road rage incidents against road workers is escalating.

In light of these incidents Tweed GM Troy Green reminded residents that there are a lot of roadworks happening in the shire at the moment and it should not be a surprise to any motorist that you might encounter a stop / slow flagman and delays. He added that while they try to keep the delay to less than 5 minutes, this isn’t always possible but abuse is never warranted.

Motorists have been warned that they can expect to be charged and prosecuted if they assault a roadworker.
