Let’s work towards a total ban on fireworks

2016-01-14 06:00

RABI is obviously not a member of Hibiscus­ Coast Seconds (HCS) on Facebook­ (“Welfare organisations’ silence­ is deafening” - 7 January).

Many complaints, threats and heartsore stories about fireworks during New Years were posted.

Fireworks are not allowed to be used during Christmas and PS: New Year is not a “Christian festival”. Let’s keep fingers pointed at where they belong - on the people who abuse fireworks, and not on blaming “Christian festivals”.

I totally agree that fireworks should be banned all together as there are many natural areas on the South Coast where wild animals are terrorised by this waste of money.

While I do understand the money belongs to the people who spend it, they don’t seem to understand the concept of affecting people around them with the horrific bangs. Perhaps lets get the ball rolling on banning fireworks all together on the South Coast - every day of the year - and ban the sale of fireworks as well.
