'Lazy' drivers continue to ignore stop sign at McLean St

BUNDABERG Police remain frustrated with drivers still not adhering to the stop sign at the intersection of Bourbong and McLean Sts.

In September, police urged drivers to make sure they came to a complete stop at the then new sign at the intersection of McLean and Bourbong Sts after more than 50 drivers failed to do so in a 90-minute period.

Since then Bundaberg Road Policing Unit Senior Constable Dave Didsman said plenty of drivers were still ignoring the sign.

"It comes down to laziness," he said.

"Give way and stop signs are still our biggest problem in Bundaberg.

"People are not taking the three seconds to think and wait because they have to get there yesterday."

The penalty for not stopping at a stop sign is $353 and three demerit points.
