MOTORISTS are being urged to stay safe on the roads this long weekend and take regular breaks to avoid driving tired.

Roadwise Driver Reviver volunteers will be offering motorists on Indian Ocean Drive a cuppa and a biscuit before they continue with their journey home.

Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said she hoped people would put safety ahead of saving time.

“Long weekends are always a busy time on our roads, particularly on Indian Ocean Drive, so it is important that drivers take regular breaks on long trips,” she said.

“Driving tired reduces concentration and slows down reflexes, putting drivers, passengers and other road users at risk.

“It’s just not worth it so, please stay safe, take regular breaks, and always drive responsibly.”

The Roadwise Driver Reviver van will be located on Indian Ocean Drive, near Acacia Road on Monday, March 4, and again on Easter Monday in April.
