RACQ: Stay alert and live these holidays
THE State's peak motoring body says fatigue is the silent killer on our roads, especially during the holiday period.
RACQ has pleaded with motorists to stop driving tired in a bid to reduce fatigue related crashes this school holidays.
The motoring body warned motorists to remain alert behind the wheel as the state enters a high-risk period on Queensland roads over Christmas and the summer break.
RACQ's Executive Manager for Safety and Technical Policy Steve Spalding said last year fatigue contributed to about 15% of the road toll.
