NSW: Car rolls over at Point Clare Public School

News Point Clare, Australia - 10 November 2016

A car accident took place on the corner of Brisbane Water Drive and Takari Ave in Point Clare, NSW on November 10, 2016 resulting in one car rolling onto its roof across the footpath.

If the accident had have occurred approximately 90 minutes earlier parents and children leaving Point Clare Public School would have been walking on the footpath where the car flipped. There is no School Zone along Brisbane Water Dr to prevent accidents such as this.

For over 10 years a school zone has had been requested by the school council and P&C Association and rejected by NSW Roads and Marine Service. Currently a review is being by RMS on Brisbane Water Dr and it does not include a school zone along Brisbane Water Dr with a turning lane into Takari Ave the only safety measure proposed.

In Aug 2014 on the same corner a car accident resulted in one car crashing into the school fence. Again luckily not during the school zone times and no injuries occurred to students or parents.

It would appear that RMS will require a major injury or fatality to occur to students or parents before a school zone put in place.
