Wicked Campers owner John Webb has produced stickers which he has put on all his vans. They say: ''Kangaroos. Run the f#!@ers down!'' Mr Webb said the mess- age was a safety pre- caution. ''With about 90 per cent of our drivers from overseas we need to impress on them you don't swerve,'' he said. ''So many of them arrive here expecting to see roos in the main streets of our cities. We have Americans turning up here wonder- ing if they can get petrol outside capital cities. They need this help.'' Wicked Campers has been given access to Fraser Island, notorious for overturning cars. Those stickers will say ''This Side Up''. Weekly Times aNEW LOOKfor an OLD MATE !
