If it is flooded, forget it
Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey urged drivers to use common sense when driving during wet weather, with more rain predicted this weekend.
“Flood waters can be deceptive, with hidden dangers below the surface, so it’s not worth risking it just to get home or to work faster,” Mr Bailey said.
“Tragically, we have already seen one person lose their life this week to flood waters."
Police Minister Mark Ryan said the rapidly approaching summer was shaping up as a particularly challenging one.
“All the expert advice points to plenty of wet weather and that means challenging road conditions,” Mr Ryan said.
“It’s up to everyone to take responsibility for road safety."
