Remember -  be responsible, be alert and be safe on our roads over the Easter break

I am pleading with all Queenslanders' to allow plenty of time to get to their destination to avoid the temptation to rush.

One death on our roads is one death too many. Each loss of a life has a devastating impact upon families, friends, loved ones and individual communities right across Queensland.

Drivers need to focus heavily on the fatal five – speeding, drink and drug driving, fatigue, driver inattention and drivers not wearing a seatbelt.

If we all put a bit more thought into our driving habits, lives can be saved.

Without a doubt road safety is a shared responsibility in which we all must play a part.

Please take it easy on the roads. We want to make sure you and your family are safe and sound - wherever you may be – over Easter.

Remember -  be responsible, be alert and be safe at all times on our roads.
