'No sympathy': Latest Mudlo Rocks victim slammed
THE driver of a Ford Ranger that became wedged at the notorious Mudlo Rocks over the Easter long weekend has received a harsh backlash for ignoring warnings.
About 14 cars had to be retrieved from Rainbow Beach and Fraser Island during the busy long weekend.
Warnings were issued to drivers to stay off the dunes and avoid driving at high tide as campers flooded the popular Cooloola Coast.
But according to Rainbow Beach Towing and Roadside Assist, four vehicles still got themselves into trouble, having to be towed off the beach.
The Ford Ranger was the fourth car to be rescued and the only car that got stuck at Mudlo Rocks.
The driver reportedly decided to access the rocks during mid-tide.
Mudlo Rocks is currently impassable at all times due to severe erosion.
Popular Facebook page I got bogged at Inskip Point was inundated with comments after it shared multiple photos of the stranded four-wheel-drive.
"Mudlo didn't do a thing. The driver is responsible for that," Dave Challinor said.
Should there be more restrictions for 4WDs at Rainbow Beach?
This poll ended on 23 May 2019.
Yes, save people from themselves.
No, let people make their own decisions.
There should be fines for stupidity.
This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.
"There has been plenty of warnings going around that the rocks at Mudlo was not possible. No sympathy," Manda Dave Jones said.
"It's been unpassable for months, this is preventable," Wolfgang Haiden said.
