Truckie calls for 4-lane Bruce Hwy after another fatal

User Rating: / 0

A TOWNSVILLE truckie who travels the Bruce Highway every day carries a trauma teddy with him in his cab for when he comes across yet another crash scene.

Andy Kmet, a third generation truck driver, has been haunted by the number of crashes he's seen on our roads and wants to see a four-lane highway which he says would save lives.

"The Bruce Highway is the most dangerous road in Australia," Mr Kmet told the Townsville Bulletin.

He said he believed the "number one contributor" to crashes was impatience.

The former firefighter said it wasn't just victims and victims' families who suffered after fatal crashes - it was the people who turn up to help.

He said he keeps a trauma teddy in his truck with him now and says if he comes across a crash, says to the kids "can you keep an eye on my teddy for me?"

Mr Kmet believes the Bruce Highway should be widened to become a four-lane 'dual carriageway' from Gympie all the way north to Cairns.
