Motorists are urged to drive revived if travelling on the roads this long weekend.
“The State Emergency Service will have Driver Reviver stations set up again this long weekend, with drivers urged to pull in and take a break,” said SES Acting Director, Matthew Brocklehurst.
“Drivers are reminded to take regular breaks to avoid driving tired to prevent crashes which could have devastating consequences.
“Our dedicated SES volunteers will be out supporting the community this long weekend, providing a reviver stop for all drivers, to encourage safe behaviours on our roads.”
Driver reviver sites will be staffed by SES volunteers on Monday, with free tea and coffee available for people needing to take a break, at:
- Paramatta Creek – Bass Highway, between Latrobe and Deloraine
- St Peters Pass – Midland Highway near Oatlands
- Sideling Lookout – Tasman Highway between Launceston and Scottsdale
- Franklin River – Lyell Highway near Mt Arrowsmith.
