Stop, revive and survive with service clubs’ help
The Murchison SES Unit and Murchison Lions Club volunteers will conduct two Driver Reviver stops on the Goulburn Valley Highway this Easter long weekend.
In an effort to help motorists reach their destinations safely, the Murchison Lions Club will be stationed on the corner of Goulburn Valley Hwy and Moss Rd (northbound) at the Caltex Service Station in Wahring.
They will operate the rest area Thursday, April 13, from 2 pm to late.
The Murchison SES will conduct a Driver Reviver site at the Wahring Rest Stop heading southbound on the Goulburn Valley Hwy on Monday, April 17, from 8 am to 8 pm.
Fatigue is one of the big killers on Victorian roads and Driver Reviver sites offer a place for motorists and passengers to take a break
this and enjoy a free cup of tea or coffee and some biscuits.
VICSES assistant chief officer Keith O’Brien reminded people that Easter was a busy time with significant amounts of traffic on the road.
‘‘It is a time to take care and avoid the deadly killer— fatigue. SES volunteers would rather see you at a rest stop than an accident,’’ Mr O’Brien said.
The Driver Reviver campaign has been operating for 26 years with one objective: to reduce road collisions by alleviating driver fatigue.
SES and Lions volunteers contribute thousands of hours each year towards providing Driver Reviver as a way to reduce driver fatigue and resulting car crashes.
The simple message is ‘‘stop, revive and arrive alive’’.
