The ABC’s got a po-faced story reminding us that not only can you not buy fireworks this year, but if you get caught with them you’re in big trouble:
Work Safety Commissioner Mark McCabe says the ban was implemented following a number of reviews.
“The ban was eventually considered necessary in the interests of public safety and animal welfare,” he said.
“If a retailer is caught selling fireworks, or any person is caught possessing, using or attempting to purchase fireworks this long weekend, they may be prosecuted and subject to serious penalties.”
I think I might make a sparkler bomb.
(oh yes, double demerits too)
