THE corner of Wood and Wallace Sts is the site of near or actual collisions about once a day, with drivers failing to safely navigate the dual turning lanes.

Cars dangerously attempting to turn on the inside of trucks and vehicles failing to stay in their turning lanes are the biggest offenders.

Warwick police acting officer in charge Shane Reid said motorists who failed to give way to trucks turning in the same direction risked having their cars crushed by the big rigs.

"Vehicles over 7.5m in length must display do not overtake turning vehicle signs," Act Snr Sgt Reid said.

"Other vehicles turning in the same direction as these vehicles on a multi-lane road must not overtake or they commit an offence and risk the larger vehicle colliding with them."

Motorists are urged to remain behind trucks displaying these signs until the truck has safely completed the turn.
