Police urge caution on the road during wet weather

Police are asking motorists to take care during the heavy rainfall expected across Queensland this weekend.

Assistant Commissioner Mike Keating, Road Policing Command said officers are urging extra vigilance in the wet weather.

“Heavy rainfall is expected and whilst it may not be as extreme as the severe weather event a couple of weeks ago we still ask all drivers to be patient and to take great care on roads,” Assistant Commissioner Keating said.

“We have said it before, but it is really vital not to ignore road closure signs. Regardless of what vehicle you are driving, if the road is flooded, or signed as being flooded, don’t take the risk.

“Not only is it extremely dangerous, but you can receive an on-the-spot fine of $683 or even face criminal charges for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle as well as running the risk of voiding insurance policies.

“It’s bad enough putting yourself at risk, but you’re also endangering the lives of your passengers as well as police and other emergency services who respond.

“Rescuing stranded travellers is dangerous work and puts considerable pressure on emergency services.

“We have a very simple message to motorists contemplating taking the risk. If it’s flooded, forget it.”

Wet weather safety tips:
• Be flexible and be prepared to change your plans depending on the weather
• Drive to conditions – this includes increasing your stopping distance and ensuring your headlights are on
• Never attempt to cross flooded roadways, creeks or rivers either in your vehicle or on foot
• Never let your children play in flood waters – they are dangerous, unpredictable and can cause illness
• Tie down outside furniture
• Have a first aid kit, torch, and some basic supplies handy as well as a battery operated radio. ABC Local Radio is Queensland’s emergency services broadcaster.
