Just a reminder to anyone traveling over Easter or the school holidays to take that extra bit of care, keep your 2 second gap between your car and the vehicle ahead ( 5 seconds in the wet ) and watch out for the idiots on the roads.

We want you and your loved ones back safe and happy after your break.

Dug,
I will be safely at work and I will try to keep my distance from the 50tonne+ trucks underground, it will be much safer than playing with the easter traffic.

Keep it safe and on the road

I will be safely barricaded in my shed working on the old truck. Far too many people in a hurry to all get to that secluded spot that all of a sudden becomes not so secluded.

But very nice thought for those on the road. Thanks.

Have a safe and enjoyable Easter

Cheers Pop

For those people cruising either up or down the Bruce Highway on Saturday. Drop in to the Driver Reviver at the Calliope Historical Village (about 10km north of the Bruce and Dawson highway cross roads) between 8am and 1pm as I will be there running the Driver Reviver.
I'll have Darkie there as well so keep an eye out LOL

I had to Knock back the 12am to 8 am Saturday night (Sunday Morning) shift as someone has to help the Easter Bunny deliver the kids goodies ;)


Cheers Kev

I imagine there will be a few EO people on the move during the Easter weekend.

Hope to see you on Saturday

Hi D200Dug,

Thanks for the post!!!! its always a scary time on the roads during the school hol's, I guess we take it for granted as we are permantely on the road, however we see a lot of people pull in take an hour to set up and then they have to leave the next day - I do feel for them as they just wouldn't have much time to relax, although it is a change of scenery I guess. we are in Shepp VIC at the moment and the van park is slowly filling with tourists!!!. We probably won't go to far ourselves - we do have to go to the Airport (Tullarmarine) on Saturday, however I am told its just straight down the highway.

Have a Happy, Safe Easter - and may the Easter Bunny be kind to you!!! :-)

Cheers
Caroline

If you haven't filled up with fuel it is too late. Went up 10 cents here in Townsville yesterday in readiness for the weekend.

We are just home after an Easter trip from the sunny coast to Rockvagas and back.

We left the Thursday before Easter and police were in very large numbers on the highway. Just north of Gin Gin there was a total roadblock both lanes north and south with license breathalyzer and drug tests, sniffer dogs and vehicle inspections we would estimate 20 to 30 police running the operation very well organized and LOTS of empty cars parked in a holding area on van full of backpackers being searched ( for drugs I expect )

Still we were passed by idiots and saw some really stupid drivers.

Trip home today we saw fewer police but their was a roadblock just south of Gympie doing license and alcohol checks probably 10 to 20 police.

It was great to see a heave police presence on the roads, sad that it is needed to protect people from themselves but those are the facts of life.

Talking to a cop in Gladstone they had all the police staff including those normally doing 9 to 5 office work out on the roads and streets. The young lady who did the breathalyzer on us was a police prosecutor who is normally in courts this weekend she was on the roads looking for customers !!!!!!
