NC500 tourists were branded ‘reckless’ and ‘thoughtless’ after parking in a beautiful spot.
Angry locals took to social media and posted a photo of the RV in a parking lot.
However, they pointed out that the vehicle slid onto the sidewalk, which left no room for pedestrians.
The snapshot shows the RV taking up the entire sidewalk.
The tourists then set up some seats and settled on the grass bank above a beach on the popular NC500 route.
Local residents pointed out that there is no space on the sidewalk for pedestrians to stroll and for mothers to push strollers.
The post on Facebook read: “Inconsiderate RV drivers…”
“Where should pedestrians walk, mothers with prams and small children on bicycles or scooters?”
“And they wonder why residents are complaining.”
Many echoed the comments, calling the driver “reckless.”
One person said: “It’s just inconsiderate. Imagine you are someone with a stroller or with a disability who is forced to take to the streets.”
Another wrote: “Totally unacceptable! It’s reckless people like these that give campervan drivers a bad name!”
A third commented: “Has anyone done anything about it? There are many legal, peaceful, non-violent, non-aggressive, inventive, and potentially fun things I would have done.”
“It’s time people stop taking pictures and start taking action (peaceful etc like I said above). Commenting didn’t work. The last few years should make that clear.”
However, some people have defended the camper driver.
One wrote: “Maybe they just stopped for lunch or a cup of tea? If they hadn’t parked on the sidewalk, would the vehicle have caused an obstruction on the road?”
“If they parked alongside the sidewalk, would they take up too much space and no room for anyone else? If the person who took this photo had also taken other pictures from different angles, it might have told a different story. Not everything is like that.” Black and white!”
And another said: “Some battles are worth picking… that’s an inconvenience.”
“It might be annoying, but is it worth reporting and making a fuss about when all that’s likely to be required is a polite chat with the people involved? Or honestly accept that they might be there for an hour and then move on?!”
“If you were defecating on the sidewalk, I can understand why you would consider declaring war. I would be far more concerned if they parked their vehicle on the street and were obstructing the flow of traffic.”
