Stickybeaks reminded to move on
POLICE would like to remind sightseers to steer clear of areas where clean-up efforts are underway.
Over the last few days a number of incidents have occurred where emergency services have been hampered by sightseers, slowing traffic or disobeying the road rules.
Brisbane District Disaster Coordinator Assistant Commissioner Peter Martin said that free flowing traffic was imperative to the recovery effort.
“Emergency service workers need to be able to perform their duties in a timely and efficient manner. That means we will need clear access to buildings, homes and roads,” Mr Martin said.
Police remind motorists not to attempt to cross flooded roads or causeways.
“Do not risk your life, the lives of those in your vehicle and the lives of rescuers.
“Nothing is so important that you need to enter floodwaters.”
