A road safety initiative of Queensland Police Service ?
The ‘Stay on Track Outback’ road safety project is a problem–oriented partnership initiative of the Charleville Patrol Group (Queensland Police Service) that provides visitors to the outback with important road safety tips and useful travel information when driving on Outback highways and roads.
When a wide load is coming towards you, slow down and where possible, find a safe spot to pull off the road.
Communicate by UHF 40 to the truck drivers; escort vehicle and other travellers.
As a rule of thumb – a vehicle towing a trailer or caravan should allow two seconds, plus one second for each 3 metres of trailer.
Don't forget to check the distance between fuel stations!
