I seriously think this turning into a vendetta against these girls, nothing at all gets mentioned about the locals driving down one way systems, rules are there for ALL not when it suits. As for the reply to my comment earlier if you read it properly I merely pointed out that as responsible parents we have to be extremely vigilant NOT that the parents are to blame thank goodness the little girl was not injured, I would also like to point out drink that got thrown over the young lady in my opinion that is assault he had no reason to get involved.
It was in my opinion a polite request to everyone, visitors and locals alike - and yes locals do read these pages and participate on this Forum.
All Steve did in his original post was to highlight an incident that caused concern to him and others on that particular day and time and prompted him to make the simple statement - PLEASE DRIVE CAREFULLY.
If the driver of the car had been a resident of Roda Steve would have still reported it in the same way - and quite rightly too.
There is no vendetta,no witch hunt,no hidden adgenda with the Tour Operators.
It was simply a call for common sense to prevail in what is a busy but small and compact holiday resort.
Jacks is right - this post seems to have attracted a lot of "guests" - I wont express an opinion on the incident as I wasnt there - but I trust Steve to have given an accurate account of the incident.
I think that whilst we may all have differing opinions on the "highway code" and its interpretation / compliance in Roda by visitors and locals alike, the very least that we can do is remain civil towards one another.

claire did u read my post? i stated the near misses whioh involved my self and my wife were both drivers were greek and it is not about natonalities ,its about careless, unsafe and dangerous driving. to reverse up coronation st and turn at the supermarket would have been the safer option
This is my absolute last post on this subject. I have no objection to Steve posting he saw a near accident, I do not place the blame on the parents, child, driver involved. My objection is to specifying it WAS tour reps. The posting is please take care on the roads and obey the road rules. It seems all of us have seen near misses, disobeying of the road rules, bad driving BUT to post the only near accident ( in which no-one was hurt) was by a person who is working to promote and look after tourists is wrong. As I have said in previous post, if she is a bad driver, take it up with her employers. They will discipline her but for such an incident I can't see they will remove their business from our delightful village.
In my view, Had the person who witnessed this incident first hand announced earlier than stated that they were not withholding information about that the individuals involved & that the driver were known to them as a tour rep, their manager had been contacted to report this event & to relate their attitude to a previous incident, Then much of this conversation could have been avoided. Lets not take safety for granted.
Johnboy (hope I dont mistake you for another John): you were very smart because you always used your bike for transport when working at Theo's... still working as a rep ?? You must miss Roda very much ?! greets from Holland ps: Danny is on his way to Roda ...
