CICLONE DEBBIE * Australia: TIPS FOR DRIVING IN STORMS

* Canberra - ATA Safety Alert: Hurricane Debbie

--- The ATA is urging everyone on the roads, travelling within and to Queensland to drive carefully... As there are additional dangers and difficulties created during a storm, a responsible driver should plan their driving time and route to ensure they are not on the road during a storm event... Due to the unpredictable road conditions that Cyclone Debbie may generate, Transport and Main Roads, (TMR) and Queensland Police Service (QPS) have restricted heavy vehicle movement. 

* TIPS FOR DRIVING IN STORMS 
- Plan the time and route of travel to avoid threatening storms 
- If you cannot avoid the storm; consider stopping 
- Remember it is better to arrive late than not arrive at all! 
- Be prepared for the reckless actions of other drivers 
- Turn your headlights on, see and be seen 
- Hold the steering wheel in both hands ready for aquaplaning 
- Leave room to manoeuvre 
- Drive to the prevailing conditions 
- Be ready for the unexpected 
- Never drive through flood waters 

The ATA wishes everyone and their families all the best in this difficult time and to stay safe...
