When we’re behind the wheel, driving safely should be our number one priority. You might be surprised to know that dangerous habits like tailgating, not giving way, and running red lights contributed to half of all serious crashes in Queensland.
The Fatal 5 (speeding, mobile phone distraction, drink driving, fatigue and not wearing a seatbelt) also contributed to over one-third of serious crashes where people were seriously injured or lost their life, from 2014 to 2018.
What can you do? Qld Road Safety week is around the corner! Show your support by kicking those bad driving habits and make our roads a safer place for everyone. Check out the StreetSmarts website for a range of activities and resources https://streetsmarts.initiatives.qld.gov.au/
