How to avoid driving tired on long trips

  • Take regular breaks - at least 15 minutes every two hours and an additional 30 minutes every 5 hours is recommended.
  • Pull into rest areas, tourist spots and Driver Reviver sites
  • Avoid drinking alcohol before and during the trip.
  • Check with your doctor if any medications you are taking affect your driving ability.
  • Eat properly - not too little, not too much. Big meals can make you drowsy.
  • Get plenty of sleep before your trip - not getting enough quality sleep before your trip is dangerous.
  • Don't drive for more than 8-10 hours in a day. If driving a heavy vehicle, demerit points and fines apply if you commit a fatigue offence.
  • Get fresh air in the car and during breaks.
  • Share the driving.
  • Plan ahead-arrange stops and rest overnight.
  • Check for warning signs of tiredness
  • As soon as you feel tired, stop and rest.
