Traffic Jam Stretches Across South Australian Beach

A long line of cars stretched along the sand of Goolwa Beach, South Australia, on January 1.

Philippe Grummett recorded video of the jam, which received much attention on social media.

Alexandrina Mayor Keith Parkes appeared on ABC’s Breakfast radio show to address the issue. He spoke to Spence Denny on air and condemned people using inappropriate vehicles on the beach, leaving waste behind, ignoring signage, and blocking the ramp to the beach with their vehicles. However, Parkes said on the show that “the last thing on earth” he wants to do is prohibit vehicles from driving on the beach. Credit: Philippe Grummett via Storyful
