FREE CARAVAN SAFETY CHECKS – POSTPONEMENT

The Free Caravan Safety Check Program organised by the Caravan Trade & Industries Association of Queensland in conjunction with the Queensland Department of Transport & Main Roads has had to be postponed indefinitely given the current health warnings in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

It is the Association’s intention to re-introduce this Road Safety initiative as soon as we are able however this is clearly unlikely to be in the near future.

This applies to all scheduled locations throughout the State of Queensland.

When the program can be safely reinstated a new schedule of locations and dates will be published on their website.

We apologise to those caravan & recreational vehicle owners who had hoped to participate in this year’s planned program and again thank the Queensland Government and particularly The Minister, Hon Mark Bailey MP, for continued support.

 

Caravanning Queensland provides a Free Caravan Safety Check Program to owners of Caravans, Motorhomes and other recreational vehicles.

 

The free program is an initiative of the official Queensland caravan industry body – Caravan Trade & Industries Association of Queensland (Caravanning Queensland), – organised in conjunction with the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

 

The event has been designed to increase driver understanding of the challenges they may face whilst travelling on the roads, and to ensure they are better equipped to avoid accidents. The program also features towing equipment and other safety accessory displays, which attendees can inspect and discuss with experts on the day.*

 

The program is a safe zone for all who attend – no fines or breaches will be issued. It is purely an educational activity with the ultimate aim of ensuring that you are travelling safe and compliant.
