Queensland Motorists Urged to Slow Down To Protect Road Workers

Queensland’s roadusers have been urged to keep calm and drive slowly through roadworks to ensure the safety of road workers.

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland’s Tony James said traffic controllers’ lives were being put at risk by aggressive driving from some motorists and those impatient drivers at roadwork sites.

Annually about 100 traffic controllers suffered a work-related injury requiring medical treatment or time off work and at least one person is killed each year on roadwork sites.

Checking routes in advance and allowing sufficient travel times to destinations would allow roadusers to avoid speeding and getting frustrated at roadwork sites where they have to slow down, Mr James advised.
