Responded By: Hon Annastacia Palaszczuk MP on 6/09/2011

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House that in the Beaudesert Electorate there has been a number of serious accidents and the fatality of an eight year old boy after he left his school bus.  The absence of pick-up and drop-off points is an ongoing hazard and needs to be addressed as a matter of urgency.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to investigate the definition of roads which require designated pick-up and drop-off points and the introduction of flashing lights which require both sides of traffic to stop when a bus is making a pick-up or drop-off in a non-designated stop.
