DRIV­ING IS A DRAG

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

As peak sea­son gets busier and busier I think visi­tors to our beau­ti­ful part of the world should be made aware to give way if they can’t find their gas pedal when trav­el­ling on the Cap­tain Cook High­way between here and Cairns.

Nu­mer­ous times I’ve been stuck be­hind a slow mov­ing camper van or rental car.

It’s com­mon cour­tesy, it’s plainly stated on the signs and makes ev­ery­one happy if you just pull to the side.

Some­times how­ever when they do give way in the slow lane, they don’t ac­tu­ally give way to traf­fic be­hind them and merge straight back in be­fore any­one can pass.

Peo­ple need to learn our road rules, I un­der­stand driv­ing in a new coun­try or state is a bit dif­fer­ent but some­thing should be done to pre­vent ac­ci­dents on our roads. It wasn’t too long ago I was fac­ing a car head on.
