Visitor centres get behind driver reviver
THREE visitor information centres in Somerset have again committed to the Driver Reviver campaign.
The campaign is a national, volunteer-based initiative that aims to address driver fatigue.
The centres at Fernvale, Toogoolawah and Kilcoy are offering free tea, coffee and snacks for travellers and are open now, until Monday, October 7.
“Drivers are encouraged to take a break every two hours, and Somerset is the perfect place to relax and stretch your legs,” Somerset Mayor Graeme Lehmann said when the program began in August.
“Somerset Regional Council has four accredited visitor information centres offering booklets, brochures, maps and more on the area’s attractions.
“The centres are open seven days a week, staffed by knowledgeable volunteers and council employees.”
The Driver Reviver stations are inside the information centres at 1483 Brisbane Valley Highway, Fernvale; 29 Factory Rd, Toogoolawah; and 41 Hope St, Kilcoy.
STAY ALERT: Driver fatigue can be just as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol.
