Car sellers face fines



SELLING cars at the side of the road has become so popular in Coffs Harbour that even car dealers have been seen leaving vehicles with 'for sale' signs, but the days of kerbside sales are numbered. Council parking officers are set to start issuing fines in an attempt to eradicate the practice. The action has been prompted by complaints over a long period that the unofficial car yards are both ugly and unsafe. "We have seen a significant rise in roadside sales over the past few years as the value of used cars has fallen markedly," Cr Rod McKelvey said. "Not only does it cause offence to residents but there is anecdotal evidence that cars are slowing down to look at used vehicles, causing traffic accidents." The council did give in-principle support to the establishment of a weekend car market in a suitable location.
