This plan concerns managing the risks from a low level of skid resistance. When the level of friction between the road surface and a vehicle tire is insufficient, such as when the road is wet, the risk of a skid and a crash rises dramatically. This plan does three thing: it establishes the Queensland Department of Main Roads (QDMR’s) objective and strategy for skid resistance; it describes the actions necessary to implement the strategies; and it identifies the processes used to manage skid resistance.
