MORE than 40 Driver Reviver sites across the state will provide motorists a place to rest during the busy Easter period.
Minister for Police and Emergency Services Kim Wells urged holidaymakers to avoid driver fatigue and reduce the risk of an accident by stopping at Driver Reviver sites across the state this Easter.
“For 25 years, the Driver Reviver campaign has played a significant role in road safety, helping to reduce road tragedy by alleviating motorists of driver fatigue during the busy holiday periods,” Mr Wells said.
“This Easter, 46 Driver Reviver sites across Victoria will be manned by SES and Lions Clubs volunteers from tomorrow through until next Tuesday," he said.
“I call on everyone, particularly those on long-haul trips, to take a break and stop at a Driver Reviver site. The longer you drive, the greater the risk."
The sites will offer motorists a safe place to rest, have a drink, change drivers or have a power nap away from passing traffic.
