Unsafe and unroadworthy vehicles put the lives of other road users in danger. Simply driving with one headlight out or a broken indicator may cause a serious accident resulting in extensive damage and injury.
Queensland vehicles are only required to be inspected for roadworthiness when being sold. Therefore, unless they are pulled up for a random inspection by police, unsafe vehicles may fly under the radar for years, continuing to drive on Queensland roads, placing other road users at risk.
So what can you do if you encounter a vehicle with missing parts, no brake lights or defective indicators or headlights?
Queensland Transport and Main Roads handle complaints about unsafe vehicles and can investigate allegations about vehicles with questionable safety standards.
