Driving in wet conditions

Water on the road can increase danger to your journey, so follow these key driving tips:

  • Ensure you have good tyre tread. 
  • Slow down. 
  • Double your distance between you and the car in front. This allows for greater reaction and braking time. 
  • Postpone your trip on unsealed roads.
  • Check road conditions on the QLDTraffic website, with local police or RACQ. 
  • Turn on your lights. 
  • Know road flooding signage and follow the direction of the signs. 
  • Never drive on flooded roads. Even in a small amount of water the current can pick up your car and sweep you away. 
  • Drive carefully if you have to drive during and after natural disasters. Depending on the severity of the event, roads may be damaged or there may be unseen hazards on your path or in the water.

Remember, if it’s flooded, forget it!
