Taking a break while driving long distances
Roads and Maritime encourages drivers to 'stop, revive, survive'.
Rest areas and Driver Reviver are strategically positioned to provide opportunities for drivers to take breaks when they recognise the warning signs of fatigue, which contributes significantly to travel safety and efficiency. View the NSW Rest Areas interactive map.
