Mud Driving – Outback Travel Australia

Good 4WD driving techniques will help to avoid having an accident while driving on muddy roads. Rain can quickly turn a dry, dusty track into a slippery, muddy and dangerous surface, and you’ll need full concentration and very good driving skills to stay on the road. If you’re towing a camper-trailer, caravan or boat it’s especially important to make every driving manoeuvre as smooth as possible. Avoid sudden braking and steering, and keep the speed down.
The road used in this video was closed about two hours after we had set out. Affected roads are normally closed by officials during periods of heavy rain and flooding for safety reasons and to preserve road surfaces. Heavy fines apply for driving on a road which displays a ROAD CLOSED sign.
