Michelle Weaver started this petition to Jenny Hill Townsville City Council

The current situation with random, angry men delivering coward punches to young men and women in nightclub strips is a constant source of worry and tragedy for many of us. We entreat councils/nightclub strips to install soft fall on the footpaths in these precincts. If the perpetrators insist on inflicting their violence on innocent bystanders perhaps we should take a similar stance as we do our preschoolers. It seems that it's not usually the punch that kills the victim but the impact on the footpath resulting from the coward punch. With the ice/drug/alcohol-obsessed epidemic, it appears that education in the form of friendly television commercials is not having the required effect.

We make it make it our mission that precincts such as Flinders Street East in Townsville, Kings Cross, Fortitude Valley, Surfers Paradise and similar hotspots have soft fall surfaces installed.
