Driver fatigue, or tiredness, is also one of the major contributors to accidents here in Queensland. Because driving between destination can sometimes take many hours, drivers can become tired and make bad decisions, or worse, fall asleep at the wheel.

It is recommended that drivers stop every 2 hours to stretch their legs, freshen up and eat or drink for energy. Besides, when exploring such a beautiful countryside like Queensland, there is always so much to see and do … so what’s the rush
