Opinion: new camping penalties

Vic Parks to issue on-the-spot fines for oversized campfires.

The Vic government has announced that it will be issuing on the spote fines to campers who leave fires unattended or light over-sized campfires in the state's parks.

Are these rules a sensible precaution as we approach bushfire season, or are they extreme? Is a $360 fine too harsh or too lenient?
