Idiots in early to try newly resurfaced Mt Morgan range road
THE Mount Morgan range had been open for only a few hours when the first cases of dangerous driving were caught on camera.
The $21.7 million reconstructed road was reopened on Sunday, and that day two separate dash cams recorded two separate cars overtaking other vehicles over double white lines.
One appears to show a vehicle being overtaken as they turned a sharp corner.
The photos of the drivers were posted to the Rockhampton & Central Queensland Bad Parkers/ Drivers Facebook page.
It's not the only alarming image, with someone posting another photo appearing to show a vehicle which has spun out on Mount Archer after reportedly doing a burn out.
Fortunately no crashes were reported over the weekend in relation to these incidents.
While police have not received any reports or complaints, Rockhampton Traffic Branch Superintendent Ewan Findlater said unfortunately there are always going to be idiots on the road.
He said now police will be recommencing patrols in the area.
"Just because it's been closed for a couple of years doesn't mean the layout has changed," he said.
"Drive to the conditions and obey whatever signage of line marking there is."
The Bad Parkers/ Drives Facebook page has a collection of photos and stories of road rage, near misses and other bad behaviour.
