RACQ reveals Qld’s lesser-known road rules

The State’s peak motoring body has urged Queenslanders to brush up on their road rule knowledge, after it released a list of obscure laws that have caught out drivers.

New data* revealed more than 400 Queensland motorists had been fined for having an arm or leg outside of a vehicle, 170 drivers had been fined for having an animal on their lap, and 113 pedestrians had obstructed a vehicle during a 12-month period.

RACQ spokesperson Lauren Ritchie said it was a timely reminder to motorists who mistakenly believed police didn’t monitor minor breaches of the law.
