Red face Natural Speed Restriction

You just cannot speed around the Cairns Airport anymore ... All those radar traps and er, speed bumps??

Here is a report from a local news site.

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" size="2">Cairns croc mistaken for speed bump

A crocodile more than two-metres long has been mistaken for a speed bump in Cairns.

A taxi driver ran over the reptile on the Airport Access Road about 4:00am AEST this morning.

Fellow cabbie Les Madden says visitors to Cairns are always on the lookout for crocs, but this sighting took him and his driver by surprise.

"One of our passengers got a very close view of one of the reptiles, he wasn't doing too much on the road when he got hit," he said.

"Subsequently he had to be put out of his misery of course by the police.

"Oddly enough the fellow who hit him is nicknamed 'Scaley'."</font>
