Keep safe this road trip
With intrastate travel restrictions lifted and school holidays around the corner, our new StreetSmarts campaign #KeepSafeThisRoadTrip is reminding road users to keep safe by:
- slowing down and driving to the conditions
- taking a break every two hours
- making sure you and your passengers are always buckled up
- not drinking and driving
- following at a safe distance
- keeping your eyes on the road, not your phone.
Launched in time for upcoming school holidays, the campaign promotes these safety tips to address the ‘fatal five’ - speeding, distraction, alcohol and drugs, fatigue and not wearing a seatbelt.
The 'fatal five' continue to be the major contributing factors to lives lost on Queensland roads.
While on the road remember to treat everyone with respect, drive safe and enjoy your time away with family and friends.
