'We need to be mindful'
Cop urges road users to give 'a
tad more' consideration to RVers
Have your say
QUEENSLAND police have urged
road users to give more consideration to caravanners as COVID restrictions
Rockhampton's Sergeant Jode Fernie said many
drivers would have noticed the recent increase in RVs on the state's
highways and byways.
"Whilst it allows our economy to regain strength, it also means we need to
be mindful and share our roads with vehicles who need a tad more
consideration than smaller vehicles," she said.
"Importantly, drivers of cars need to remember the few basic tips when
driving near or behind a caravan or motorhome."
She explained that RVs needed longer to slow
down or stop and extra space to turn corners, B-doubles
or road trains could cause them to sway and driving too close behind RVs
reduced a driver's vision.
And Sgt Fernie added: "A couple of extra minutes added to your trip may be
just what you need to ensure you make it to your destination. As I say to
my own learner driver child, 'A patient driver is a safe driver'."
