A holidaymaker from Milton says he will take further action after being slapped with an almost $300 fine in Bega on Monday.
Christopher James, who has been holidaying in Tathra for the week to enjoy the annual Rockabilly Retro Rally, claims Bega lacks adequate signage for motorists at the roundabout on Zingel Pl, after he was one of reportedly 10 people fined in just one hour for turning right at the roundabout.

He said the No Entry signs placed at the roundabout exit are visible only once a driver has committed to a right turn, adding they are "too little, too late" for drivers attempting to follow the road rules.
"Everyone says visit the regional areas and spend your money, but not $300 for a traffic infringement," he said.
"As you can imagine I'm not happy, and I intend on doing something about it."
Mr James said the lack of signage leading into the roundabout in the centre of town can easily cause confusion for visiting motorists.
"I'm driving a tall four-wheel-drive which is too big for the underground parking, so I turned right," he said.
"By the time I went around the corner it was too late to see the 'no entry' sign.
"There is no visible sign saying no right turn. No sign on the left as you're approaching the roundabout.
"There's thousands of signs, but no obvious sign saying you cannot turn right."
Mr James said it wasn't until a NSW Police Force Traffic and Highway Patrol Command officer beeped his car horn in an attempt to get his attention as he walked up the stairs to Sapphire Marketplace that he realised he may have broken the law.
"As I was walking back from the shops he had pulled someone else over. I spoke to them and the police officer told us he had fined 10 people in one hour," Mr James said.
"That's almost $3000 in just one hour."
