Local Council bans remote-controlled toys in parks and reserves.
The City of Mandurah has been labelled “the fun police” after restricting remote-controlled toys in parks and reserves.
Anyone caught using the remote-controlled devices, including cars, planes and boats, on council-owned land could end up in court and face fines of up to $5000, reports Perth Now.
The City of Mandurah in WA says the new regulations were introduced to protect its public parks and reserves from damage.
The council says it will also protect people visiting the public areas.
Residents who want to use remote-controlled toys can apply to the council for a permit.
The City of Mandurah says it won’t be actively policing its public parks and reserves for remote-controlled toys.
It will only enforce the new laws when a complaint is made.
Do you think local councils are getting a bit extreme with the bans being put in place lately?
