I’m sorry further familys loss,
but this is a timely reminder that people should use the crossing and wait for there turn to cross

Agree, many pedestrians take it for granted that they can dash across the road to get to the beach.
Have to increase the crossings and reduce the speed limit in these built up areas.

So to date we have lost 6 people to Covid in QLD 2020.
The QLD State government closed the borders and ruined thousands of QLD businesses.

We have lost 254 people 2020 due to traffic crashes in QLD.
Most who were at fault and survived would have received a nominal fine and back on our roads
The State government should put those at fault into mandatory 14 day driver training and have them retested before they are allowed back on the roads.
Too many lives lost and who cares!

Very very sad, RIP
