Went for a bit of a drive yesterday and along the way we came across this, had to stop and take and take a pic, looked like tiny soldiers on guard duty.

Then came to this lovely spot I've visited more times than I can remember.

First I’ve heard of these, they are indicators that say there is a safe place up ahead where you can pullover and let following vehicles pass, start with 3 green reflective dots, then 2 finally 1 where you pull over.

Do you know at what distancs from the lay by they are located?

NEED A PLACE TO PULL OVER TO LET FASTER TRAFFIC PASS?
These green reflectors will help you find a safe place.
Often we have trucks or other vehicles behind us as we tow our van and want them to overtake but there is no safe place for them to do so.
You may have noticed some green reflectors on guide posts beside the road on some highways. These indicate that there is a safe place to pull off the road coming up soon so you can indicate your intentions and be prepared.
Approximately 500 meters from a safe place to pull over you may see 3 x Green refectors, 250 meters you may see 2 x Green refectors and just at the safe place you may see 1 x Green reflectors.
They are not every where as yet, but you may see them on the Burnett Highway in Queensland and some NSW highways.
Not all places are maintained and they are NOT for overnight or extended stays, but just to allow others to overtake or stretch your legs and check your rig.
So keep an eye out for them and you will now know what they are there fore.
