I wanted to vote on Trixie, I have seen her pic on FB but when I click on it I get sent to the home page with no clue how to find her much less vote on her???
Discount tickets to Lone Pine

Trucks should travel in the left lane of multi-lane highways
Height restrictions on roads
Closest caravan dump point to samford
Margin too slow & slowing down before they have entered the exit lane.
People not indicating when changing lanes or merging
Driving in the right lane when not doing the speed limit or just below speed limit.
“T” Junctions that have a Give way sign, & or a
Drivers who pull out to get in fromt of a caravan / truck or similiar and slow down to see if the caravan etc is also slowing down, continually checking in their rear view mirror and not watching where they are driving
Overseas visitor who arrive at airports with an international drivers licence hire a car but have no understanding of our road rules, and I am convinced in some cases having never driven before.
Visitors who believe double white lines must pass directly under their vehicle.
Pensioners receive no concession on drivers licence fees in Qld Other states charge much lower fee or NIL. Only way to reduce costs is to pay 5 years but $159 is a lot & who knows if still breating in 5 years? About time for Qld to help as other states do.
Police should spend as much time, effort and taxpayer-provided funding, on disciplining (fines, etc) drivers who drive in ANY lane on a highway, more than 10km/hr UNDER the speed limit. It could be argued to be even MORE dangerous as driving 10km/hr OVER, as drivers stuck behind become frustrated and possibly resort to dangerous driving to get around them. By comparison, at least a speeding driver goes past you quickly and generally disappears without causing you any harm (not in the slightest advocating speeding – just providing the theoretical comparison)
Clearing up the misunderstanding of indicating at roundabouts. Far too many people indicate incorrectly, which causes confusion, anger, and crashes. Police should spend time pulling up drivers for incorrect indications, as much as they do for speeding or using mobile phones. Let’s get this straight…. ONLY indicate when you are TURNING from one lane to another lane. This means ONLY when turning left or right. If you are travelling straight ahead, DON’T TOUCH THE INDICATOR. I disagree with the whole “indicate left off a r/bout” as that is also misunderstood and applied incorrectly by drivers…. and if you drive a manual European car (ie: changing gears AND indicating the the left hand) it becomes almost impossible to do both tasks at the same time.. hence people indicate left before they should.

Why were we not told about no shuttle bus from Doomben?
No shuttle bus at motorist
Why we cannot have all State and Territory in Australia to have the same Roads Rules.
Rear facing spotlights. What us the law regarding having a rear-facing spotlight hooked up to the reverse lights? Cheers!

What are the laws pertaining to fog lights, using high beam and those blinding low beam lights that appear to be on more and more oncoming cars in rural areas at night?
Mandatory motorbike protective clothing
if you are turning right off Arthur Terrace onto Jubilee Terrace Bardon and you have a green light, the traffic is still coming from Leslie St straight forward through to Arthur Terrace, this is dangerous and a potential accident waiting to happen. the lights should be red on Leslie St when you have a green light to turn onto Jubilee Terrace, how can we get this fixed please?
If cars are stationary at an intersection but one car has left an aprox. 7-9m gap between the car in front, can I indicate and merge in to that space?
Fuel prices on Sunshine Coast 20c higher!!!
Trucks must keep left on all divided highways.
Turning on headlights before dawn and at dusk. 1/4 of vehicles drive without lights thinking they can see others but in reality they can’t be seen. A vehicle with lights on indicates movement and cyclists are able to see with a quick sideways turn of the head a vehicle approaching, without lights it can be dangerous.
Boundary street roundabout is dangerous in Beenleigh
Inadequate roads and constant congestion in Beenleigh
Increased speed limit on highways to 130kph.
Seperate roads or lanes for Trucks on all main highways
RoadWorks – the operators first start by putting out a “40km ROADWORKS” sign, then put out witches caps, and, can be ½ hr later when the finally install the “110km/hr END ROADWORKS” sign (if they actually bother doing that”. This means that legally, traffic MUST DRIVE AT 40km/hr till, in the case of the M1 when they do work near the Sthbound Gateway Merge, it’s 7km before there is a 100km/hr sign. They MUST put out the “END ROADWORKS” sign BEFORE slowing traffic down. It’s just plain dangerous to be driving legally at the Max allowable 40km/hr while everyone else around you is IGNORING THE LAW and driving at 100km/hr.
I’m on a variety of roads a lot, and my observations are that much congestion is caused by bad driving. This includes incorrect lane use on 2 lane roundabouts (often making them no better than a single lane would offer), poor merging both around town and on Motorways, slowing on Motorways before moving to exit lanes (OK if there’s no traffic around, but if the Motorway is busy it slows the whole motorway down). 1) – there needs to be educationl and 2) Police (or is it politicians) are intent on RADARs – which actually cause congestion – look at when there’s one of the new mobile outfits, the M3 slows by up to 40km/hr and takes 3 or so km to settle down again. If police were to start fining offenders, word would spread and people would start driving properly.
Seriously. A joint campaign by all state motor clubs in Australia to change CTP from being vehicle based to driver based (as per the USA). We are being ripped off – if I have 3 cars, each with a paid annual CTP policy, how many can I drive at a time? so why are they all insured full-time? Theft by the insurance industry. I have asked a senior law company partner about this – he said it was more suitable than vehicle based, particularly because there is a nominal defendant in the first instance.
Motorcycles using breakdown lanes in varied speed areas on highways. Regardless of speed, motorcyclists should still be allowed to use the breakdown lane on highways when speeds are below 30kph and roadworks are not in place.
Motor bikes should still be able to travel in the breakdown lane when the traffic is doing less than 30kph on roads that have variable speeds, even when the signs for 60kph or 80kph are lit up. The decision to allow bikes to ride in the breakdown lane was originally introduced as a safety measure and the dangers haven’t changed because they have lowered the speed limits, when the traffic can’t do those speeds anyway
People travelling too fast through roundabouts
Congestion in Beenleigh
Traffic congestion during peak hours morning, afternoon or during holiday periods. A strong education program aimed at inexperienced drivers to combat rubber necking or reckless driving could be very helpful. Simply covering wreckage left after a collision would ease the rubber neckers temptations.
On Oxford St in Bulimba there are some “shared zones”. People don’t seem to know if they are just normal road or a crossing and I have seen lots of close calls. Can the signage explains who has right of way or can they just be removed or changed to crossings?!
The greenslopes roundabout on O’Keefe St is dangerous. Too many people don’t know which lane they’re supposed to be in. I think we should have it changed to a traffic intersection instead.
We are paying way too much for petrol in Cairns, it’s a rip off. Why are we paying so much more than people in Brisbane?
