Dametto shines a light on road safety

North Queensland’s Highways and Main Roads are experiencing many roadworks, which can be dangerous. My recommendation is to encourage road users to utilise hazard lights when stationary at roadworks and increase advisory signs.

“I know of two accidents between El Arish and Tully where a vehicle has run into cars pulled up at roadworks.

“This campaign will be a step in the right direction to encourage road users to take precautions when driving and actively think about road safety every time they get behind the wheel.

“Turing on hazard lights when stationary at roadworks encourages drivers to think about our surroundings and make ourselves more visible,” said Mr Dametto.
