Vent road rage on RoadTube
GOT a gripe about the condition of the highway and other roads in the area? You should post it online.
The NRMA has designed a new website - RoadTube - to give local residents a forum in which they can air their views in relation to road issues.
The NRMA will then use the groundswell of community action to lobby the State and Federal governments as part of its new 'Get NSW Moving Again' campaign.
And so, local residents are being asked to visit the site and upload videos or post comments about local roads and motoring issues that are a cause for frustration and what the Government can do to fix the mess.
Motorists can vent about any issue that concerns them, from the state of local roads to the rising petrol and diesel costs, to unfair licensing laws and school zone safety.
NRMA president Wendy Machin said anger over the government's inaction to fix the Pacific Highway was likely to be a popular RoadTube topic for North Coast residents.
“A strong RoadTube campaign supported by thousands of motorists along the North Coast would be impossible for Government to ignore,” Ms Machin said.
“North Coast residents are sick of asking governments to fix the same roads over and over, they're sick of being held to ransom by foreign oil price fluctuations and they're fed up with licensing laws that judge a driver by their age and not their ability.
“Now, people have somewhere to go to have their say and tell the Government what they need to do to fix the mess.”
You can upload your own RoadTube clip using a webcam or mobile phone. The website will also enable you to find your local MP, or blog about things that are important to you. It will also include uploaded videos from NRMA representatives, elected representatives and commentators.
