Driv­ers must be more con­sid­er­ate


“IF PEO­PLE learnt how to drive, not sit side by side at 80km/h in a 110 zone, kept left and didn’t wait un­til the last me­tre to change three lanes to exit, it would run smoothly.”

Truckie Bruce Skel­ton shared his thoughts on traf­fic on the M2 be­tween Bris­bane and the Gold Coast af­ter Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate called on the Queens­land State Gov­ern­ment to con­sider a pri­vate-pub­lic part­ner­ship for build­ing a du­pli­cate M1.

Leon Chilcott said it drove him “ab­so­lutely in­sane” and that car driv­ers “surely must re­alise trucks are heavy and take a bit more to move”.

“They need to show more con­sid­er­a­tion and let trucks move freely, then the traf­fic would flow.” Daniel Tay­lor echoed their sen­ti­ments. “The two lanes are choc-a-block and no one is in the two right lanes.”
