ROAD SAFETY: This furry passenger was snapped by Sergeant Morgan in Gin Gin as they made their way on their safe road trip.

Police have reminded the community it's important for road safety to break up long journeys during the school holidays and have a rest.

While out and about as part of Operation Spring Break, Sergeant Sharon Morgan snapped a picture of this paw-riffic little character.

On the open road with the wind in his fur, he has travelling in a motorcycle sidecar from up north.

The laid-back canine loved being the centre of attention and enjoyed being patted as his owner filled up at the local service station.

The duo were taking a break, touring the sites of Gin Gin before heading home to Maryborough.

Road safety important

Sergeant Morgan said the break would not only benefit his owner, but the little guy as well after quite a big road trip.

“It is important to take regular breaks when driving long distances,” Sergeant Morgan said.

“It is also a timely reminder to all motorists that if you are travelling with pets, make sure that they are properly restrained for their safety as well as that of the driver and other passengers.”

Take it easy on the roads this school holidays so that we can all get to our destinations safely.
