Take care on holiday return: police

GYMPIE traffic police are once again warning motorists to take great care while returning from holidays this weekend.

Sergeant Peter Webster said it was important drivers remained focussed at all times, but especially this weekend during the last minute rush to get home before school started.

"It is just so important that road users remember the fatal four and get home safely," he said.

Police expect a higher than usual traffic volume and are urging people to exercise caution and care when taking to the roads. They are particularly worried there may be sleepy drivers out there in charge of motor vehicles.

Sgt Webster said drivers needed to take it easy and not rush home.

"Arriving home alive is more important than rushing home to save a few minutes.

"It's especially important that drivers take regular breaks, at least every two hours on long trips."

Drivers need to be alert enough to avoid crashing with tired drivers who may veer across the road.
