Roadway reptile stops traffic, lives to tell the tale

DID you hear the one about the snake that crossed the road?

Well thanks to a couple of conscientious motorists, it made it to the other side.

A large snake stopped traffic on a main hinterland arterial road near Gardners Falls at Maleny on Sunday afternoon.

What would you do if you encountered a monster python on the road?

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

Photos posted to social media showed that rather than driving on, a couple of motorists stopped, got out of their car and used big sticks to coax the reptile from Landsborough Maleny Road.

Traffic queued behind them but their efforts earned praise in some comments.

"Terrific thing- kind people are wonderful, well done," one commenter wrote.
