Stop Revive Survive these holidays

Driver fatigue is a major contributor to the NSW road toll and with the start of the Christmas and New Year holidays imminent Lithgow City Council has a timely reminder to all drivers and passengers to be aware of the signs and symptoms of driver fatigue.

To assist in the reduction of driver fatigue, drivers should aim to stop at least every two hours on their drive. People can stop at driver reviver sites which operate throughout NSW, at peak holiday times. These are safe places for drivers, motorcycle riders and passengers to stop and refresh with a free cup of tea or coffee. For more information regarding the location of Driver Reviver sites or driver fatigue please visit http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/or phone 13 22 13

Please Stop Revive Survive these holidays and make it to your destination and home safely .
