WITH heavy rain still falling across the Sunshine Coast, drivers are being urged to think carefully about the choices they make as they drive in wet conditions.

Regional Traffic Co-ordinator Inspector Steve Maney said drivers needed to be aware it was poor choices, not wet roads, that could cause injury or death when driving.

"It all comes down to people making responsible choices in their driving," Insp Maney said.

"People who make poor choices in wet weather will end up causing injury, or possibly death."

Insp Maney said there had been multiple crashes on the Bruce Highway and at exit ramps over the past few days.

"We see cars travelling at 110kmh on the Bruce Highway where visibility is such that they can't stop in time if something happens in front of them," he said.

"Likewise with the exit ramps. If you decide to travel at the same speed you do when it's dry, then guess what ... you'll end up in a ditch.

"You have to ensure that you drive to the conditions so that you don't make a bad decision."
