Susan Mclennan started this petition to Queensland Minister for Transport and Main Roads

On the 28th of December 2017 my Son Luke Harris was only 25 years old, tragically died in an accident on the Bruce Highway, the motorist pulled over to the right hand side only to look for his wallet.

In Queensland, currently the law states it is illegal to pull over on the righthand side of a freeway for a non emergency reason. We need to have this law updated to include motorways and highways.

We would like to amend the current legislation to allow the inclusion of highways and Motorways to Division 4, 177 and 178 of the Transport Operations (Road Use Management - Road Rules) Regulation 2009.

While this won't help us to get justice for my son, it will help other families with cases like ours in the future.

Please support Lukes family and friends in trying to change and better the legislation for Queensland.     Go to  "Lukes Law"  petition
