Drivers must be more considerate

"IF PEOPLE learnt how to drive, not sit side by side at 80km/h in a 110 zone, kept left and didn't wait until the last metre to change three lanes to exit, it would run smoothly.”

Truckie Bruce Skelton shared his thoughts on traffic on the M2 between Brisbane and the Gold Coast after Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate called on the Queensland State Government to consider a private-public partnership for building a duplicate M1.

Leon Chilcott said it drove him "absolutely insane” and that car drivers "surely must realise trucks are heavy and take a bit more to move”.

"They need to show more consideration and let trucks move freely, then the traffic would flow.”

Daniel Taylor echoed their sentiments.

"The two lanes are choc-a-block and no one is in the two right lanes.”
