Driver Fatigue

Driver fatigue is one of the big three killers on our roads and fatigue related crashes can happen on any trip whether long or short, at anytime of the day.

It is important to think about how tired you are before driving, recognise the early warnng signs of driver fatigue and know what to do to avoid driving tired.

Before driving make sure you:

  • Get a good nights sleep
  • Avoid driving at night when your body will naturally want to sleep
  • Arrange to share the driving
  • Avoid long drives after work
  • Plan to take regular breaks from driving; stop, revive, survive
  • Find out if any medications you are taking may affect your driving

You can also test how tired you might be before you drive, head to testyourtiredself.com.au or watch the Don’t trust your tired self TV campaign on the Transport for
NSW YouTube channel.

Drive safely these school holidays.

For further information on driver fatigue please visit www.rms.nsw.gov.au or phone 13 22 13.
