Safe Separation - Especially In Wet Weather

Riders... With wetter weather coming our way, try your best to maintain at least a 2 second safety gap ahead of you, and at least 4 seconds in bad weather. This gives you greater forward visibility, and more time and space to react to situations ahead.

In reality, it's difficult - we know, and for lots of reasons. Here's a good example of how maintaining a safe gap ahead of you can be beneficial.

It's also an example of the potentially dangerous 40km/h emergency vehicle speed limit - be extra alert of other vehicles around you when you see emergency vehicles, they may not be as observant as you. It's interesting to note that the "40km/h emergency vehicle speed limit" was rejected in QLD, including by QLD Police.
