Be alert

OUR major contributing factors to road crashes are speed, inattention/fatigue, failing to wear a seatbelt and impaired driving. That is driving with alcohol and or drugs in your system.

The greater majority of road users are responsible and take care when driving a vehicle. There is this minority that have a total disregard for their safety and the safety of others.

Last weekend was a horror weekend for road trauma on WA roads, in particular regional WA.

Easter is just around the corner and we will again see an influx in vehicles on our roads as a large number of us head off for a nice holiday break.

It is time to check your vehicle before the Easter season.

Ensure it is mechanically sound and tyres are in good condition. Towing? Visit that trailer or caravan and make sure it is ready to go.

Plan your trip. Give yourself extra time. Incorporate rest breaks in your travel.
