J is for the Jitters or Judiciousness


Kempsey is a lovely town but one feels very apprehensive when you pull up at the Tourist Information Centre and see this sign.
The reality is that Kempsey has no more crime than any other country town, so does this type of information perpetuate stereotypes or is it still wise to warn visitors of possible criminal activity?

  5. They could do with someone to help them with marketing spin ... something as simple as don't leave valuables in the car would be a better message. I am sure they are not really saying someone is going to stab or shoot you.
