Travel safe

I studied with interest Travel Safe’s full page ad in this The Weekend Sun (December 27) with all its sound advice. I particularly noted the advice about taking a power nap if you are becoming distracted.

I have noted the large billboards on the sides of our roads urging drivers to take a break if they are tired. The only trouble is you can often drive on for a long time before you find a safe place to pull over and take that power nap. A few years ago I saw some very good messages on Tasmanian roads.

The same message – take a break if you are tired but added on underneath was the information that a rest area was 400m further on. What a sensible idea – put out the message and create the means to carry it out.

An idea we could easily copy.
