Nolan to look into Fraser 4WD laws

TRANSPORT Minister Rachel Nolan says she will look into whether the island needs tougher vehicle restrictions than what is planned to be rolled out next year.

She said the vehicle in Sunday’s tragedy appeared to have complied with the new measures, which include a limit of eight people, no side-facing seats and no stowing luggage on the rooftop.

“Nothing in this accident suggests a need to bring the changes forward,” she said.

“I will certainly look at this accident and whether further changes need to be made.”

The number of people allowed in a hired 4WD was to be reduced from 11 to seven by the end of the year but Ms Nolan set the number at eight following consultations with the industry.
