Everyone has a role in keeping our roads safe
Road safety starts with all of us and during Queensland Road Safety Week 2023, we have asked
Queenslanders to make a positive difference on Queensland roads.
Is there anything you can do to make the road safer?
Here are a few simple ideas to get you started:
Always use your indicator
This little yellow light is one of the most important things you can use on the road to keep safe. It lets other drivers know your intentions and allows them to act accordingly.
Smiling at others
Smiling is a simple way that road safety can start with you. Studies show that it can put you in a positive mood and helps you drive safer.
Leaving a gap
Keeping a safe distance from the car in front is an important part of road safety. That’s two-seconds in ideal conditions. Four-seconds at night or in the rain.
Waving to say thanks
A simple action like the ‘thank you’ wave makes driving a lot more pleasant and safe for everyone.
You’ll put others in a good mood and reduce the likelihood of erratic driving.
Sharing the road
No matter how you travel, sharing the road with other drivers is the way to go. On the road, as everywhere in life, a little courtesy to those around you goes a long way.
During QRSW, we encourage all Queenslanders to wear and share yellow to support road safety!
