Pause. Stop. Tips to stay safe and arrive alive, for your next road trip.

We've compiled some easy steps when planning and preparing for your next road trip.

      • Plan your journey ahead of time.
      • Aim to get enough quality sleep before driving – regardless of whether the trip is a long or short.
      • Avoid driving at times when you would usually be sleeping.
      • Don't travel for more than 8 - 10 hours a day.
      • Plan to pause from the road at least every two hours.
      • Consider swapping drivers where possible.
      • Don't drink alcohol before your trip -even a small amount can significantly contribute to driver fatigue.
      • Take a 15 minute powernap if you feel drowsy.
      • Pause and stop for a visit at the Dunkeld Visitor Information Centre or the Hamilton Visitor Information Centre and enjoy free children's activities including colouring in, postcards and tailored itinerary with points of interest.
