  1. Guess police will have to look at how effective the safety barriers are on Lions Lookout? Hopefully they’re adequate without restricting the view.

    It does matter about barriers why did it happen at all. What was the cause ………just stupidity or what? They should have been charged.

    • It will become a very memorable kiss for them. “ Hey kids, when mummy and daddy were young we once drove a car off a cliff we were kissing so much. That is how we knew we would love each other forever. “ maybe they should pay attention to if their car is in park before they start eating their faces.

    I totally disagree that they should have been charged ,and as long as they are alive and well is all that matters. Sometimes people are not aware of their surroundings as well as they could be and it only takes a few seconds to make an error in judgement. Believe me, I know that well and lost someone dear to me realizing that fact. And thanks to all those EMS people and medical staff who try to fix the broken ones.
