I'm just wondering about peoples experiences with people and traffic with their shows and how they manage to balance between keeping neighbours happy and the putting on a show. For me this year word of mouth has spread very quickly with at least 200 cars coming past a night, my house is on a very quiet small suburban backwater street that goes back around on itself but turns into a single lane that is 2 way. This was causing kaos until I started diverting traffic around 1 Way. I attempted to get a permit but was told by council that it was too late but instead to 'encourage' traffic to flow 1 way which I'm doing with signage that is lit by some RGB strip powered by a small 12VDC rechargeable battery. Ive also had to reduce the show down to 1 song just to keep traffic flowing but everyone seems happy now as it feels as Ive struck a good balance between neighbours and viewers. What does amaze me is of all the people that come and act like idiots or go the wrong way or block traffic have 100% been young provisional drivers. Its now to the point that if i see someone doing something stupid I look straight at the car for the P plate and every time the car has had one. Ive also decided to only run the show until 10.15pm at night as what i have found is the majority of visitors after that time are young inconsiderate idiots that think its acceptable to have their 100000 watt car stereos blarring away at full volume rattling eveyones windows. So now I feel i have struck a good balance and as I say to the neighbours is "your going to be impacted but all I can do is attempt to minimise that impact" and that i have done with great success.
