Don't trust your tired self
Regional roads on long weekends and weekends are inundated with metropolitan drivers escaping the city for a holiday break. These ‘road-trips’ often entail long regional drives, sparking concerns of an increase in tired drivers on WA regional roads.
Fatigue is a silent killer. As a driver, fatigue can slow your reactions and decisions, decrease your tolerance, result in poor lane tracking, affect your capability of maintaining speed, and decrease your alertness.
Between 2012-2016, 21% of regional road fatalities involved fatigue as a contributing factor.
