Almost a third of Queenslanders admit being clueless about what to do if a bushfire threatened their home, according to a survey by the state's peak motoring group.

The RACQ, also noted almost 20 per cent of the 1000 respondents thought the current state of their home made it a fire risk.

Spokeswoman Renee Smith said it was disturbing that more than 30 per cent of people were unsure what to do if a bushfire threatened their home when a big chunk of the state is drought affected.

"Bushfire survival plans are vital to saving lives, and we urge people to take the time to ensure both their property and family are protected should a bushfire approach," she said.

In an alarming concern, the survey found more than 80 per cent of people said they had seen cigarette butts thrown from car windows.
