It is almost 12 months since a drunk P-plater lost control of his car and crashed through a fence at Kendalls Beach, running over a family in a tent in the caravan park next door.
Since then Kiama Municipal Council has spent more that $10,000 on measures to improve safety at the public car park.
This has included building a raised garden that forms a barrier between the car park and caravan park, and installing a gate to be closed at dusk to prevent anti-social behaviour in the area.
However, Corrimal woman Marcia Neilson, once a regular at the Kendalls Beach Holiday Park, is concerned the measures do not go far enough.
"What they have done with the fence in the car park is great, but it needs to be extended," Ms Neilson said.
"There are issues across Australia with campers in tents being run over ... it is a regular thing."
When Ms Neilson heard a gate was being installed, she thought it would be closer to the start of the road at Bonaira Street, she said.
She also has concerns that when the gate to the car park is closed there is nowhere for people to turn around, and they could reverse onto campers.
"It would be good if they had a boom gate further down the road to keep the hoons out," she said.
Kiama Municipal Council's manager of commercial services, Russell Park, said there was no simple fix to the problem as the road from Bonaira Street through to the car park - O'Keefe Place - was a public road.
The road is used to access private residences and could not legally be closed.
Mr Park said the matter of traffic reversing at the gate had been referred to the council's road safety officer to discuss with the design engineers.
Even before last year's incident, the Kiama council had received complaints from residents living near the northern end of Kendalls Beach, as well as park guests and management, about anti-social behaviour in the car park.
Mr Park said this had not been an issue since the gate was installed. However, they had had previous problems with anti-social behaviour during the warmer months, he said.
