Road Safety Commission joins forces to combat fatigue
The Road Safety Commission has joined forces with other road safety stakeholders to continue the fight against fatigue on WA’s regional roads.
Acting Commissioner Iain Cameron joined WA Local Government Association CEO Ricky Burges, Superintendent Darren Seivwright from WA Police Force and Main Roads WA’s David Moyses in signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the Driver Reviver and Coffee Stop Programs in WA.
The agreement outlines the roles played by the Road Safety Commission, WA Police Force, Main Roads WA and WALGA’s RoadWise in providing the potentially life-saving programs for drivers around the state.
WALGA’s RoadWise has coordinated the Driver Reviver and Coffee Stop programs in Western Australia since 1998, involving local community groups and local business to reduce driver fatigue on our roads.
The Road Safety Commission’s role as outlined in the Memorandum of Understanding is to promote the Driver Reviver and Coffee Stop programs and locations, participate in a reference group to review the programs and provide any advice as required.
Drivers are encouraged to find out the Driver Reviver
and Coffee Stop
locations before any trip, by referring to the WALGA RoadWise
