If you’re planning to drive over long weekends or school holidays, keep in mind that lots of others are doing the same. But if you think first and plan ahead, it’s easy to steer clear of the worst traffic for a safe and comfortable journey.
Use the links below to plan your trip and avoid driver fatigue.
The best way to avoid driver fatigue is to make sure you have enough sleep before driving, regardless of the length of your trip.
There are 3 sleep factors to consider before deciding whether or not to start driving -circadian rhythms, sleep debt and sleep inertia.
Google Maps provides estimated trip times between any two locations in Australia. Alternate routes are also available to avoid tolls and highways.
Visit the RMS traffic website for live updates on hazards such as accidents, road work, major events, fire and flood or call the Traffic Information Line on 132 701.
