Club spokesperson Clare Hunter said the usual corridors around south east Queensland would be busy from Friday afternoon.
“The Bruce Highway to the north and the M1 toward the Gold Coast will start to build from this afternoon, with road works likely to contribute to long queues,” Ms Hunter said.
“If you can leave a little earlier than the peak period today or if you can travel tomorrow morning you may avoid getting stuck in the worst of it.
“It will also be very busy on Monday when people return home, so it’s important everyone sticks to the posted speed limit, packs their patience and remains calm if caught in congestion.”
Ms Hunter urged drivers to take extra care on the roads following an horrific few months which has seen 90 people killed in crashes.
“We’ve already lost 22 more lives than at the same point last year so it’s time we all looked at our behaviours and stopped the carnage.” she said.
“Every time you get behind the wheel, we’re asking you to get the basic road safety behaviours right. Don’t speed, don’t drive drunk, tired or distracted, wear seatbelts and drive to the changing conditions.
“We need each and every driver need to make a commitment to their safety to ensure everyone arrives at their destination.”
