Ban them before it's too late
A big shout-out to NSW Maritime for enforcing water craft rules in Jervis Bay. Tourists and locals alike love Jervis Bay because of the beaches, serenity, pristine waters and high on the list marine life. Having what I refer to as the 99 percenters (99 per cent of jetski riders are jerks) roaring around the bay at high speeds, circling around dolphin pods, is driving marine life away.
Locals will testify the has been a dramatic drop in dolphin sightings since jerkskis have infiltrated the bay. Ban them now before it is too late, tourists will still come. Jervis Bay is a marine park not a jetski race track.

Jetskis discriminated against
Most locals i know abide by the rules. it is the tourists that give the jetskiers a bad name.
Explain to me how a jetski can cause more enviromental damage than the tourist boats that opperate out of Huskisson. As a jetskier i cannot see for the life of me why we're not alowed to ride through the exclusion zone just outside of Husky when the boats are noiser, draw more water and leave a greater wash than a jetski could. It makes me feel jetskis are being discriminated against.

I blame the visitors
Jervis Bay is such an amazing place that's so quiet and beautiful until non locals come down and destroy the peace with toys on the water.
I own a jetski and love the water till this time of the year I stay away as visitors with no respect come down and cause such drama. Not happy.

No consideration for swimmers
I'm so glad to know something is being done about jetski riders in Jervis Bay.
Every year during the Christmas/January period we have have been putting up with jetski riders who have no consideration for swimmers or how much noise they create and breaking rules regarding distances from shore.
I hope authorities patroll and fine people who disobey the rules regarding this matter. Thank You.

Take your filthy butts with you
It's unbelievable you have to instal receptacles for lazy smokers to put their stinking, filthy butts into. If they want to smoke, they should take their butts with them. I went to the hospital last week and I couldn't believe the amount of people that go across the road to have a puff and 90 per cent were patients in their hospital gowns. They obviously can't read smoking kills. I suppose they're our keeping our health workers in a job.

Enough fast food in Nowra
About Taco Bell and Carl's Jr, I think we have enough eating places in Nowra, especially these sort of places.

Is this the best we can do?
The best they could do put up yet another petrol outlet and two fast food places.
So, on the one block in Nowra there will be through fast-food joints and two petrol outlets.

Good for the town
It's a great idea to have the Carl's Jr, 7-Eleven and Taco Bell. Good for the town to bring in more money for locals.
