Understanding the rules when turning into a side street
We’ve been working with Queensland school kids and drivers to bring awareness to some key Queensland road rules, so that kids can travel safely to and from school with confidence.
As a driver in Queensland when turning into a side road you must give way to pedestrians, bicycles and personal mobility devices.
It’s the law.
STOP, and WAVE when it’s safe to cross
WAIT for the road to be clear before moving forward to turn.
As a pedestrian, cyclist, or rider of a mobility device, you have right of way but you’re still vulnerable.
STOP one step back from the kerb or shoulder of the road if there is no footpath.
LOOK and LISTEN in all directions for approaching traffic.
THINK about whether it is safe to cross the road.
