AAMI Rest Towns
Pull over for a driving break every two hours. It’ll decrease the odds of you getting fatigued, and an alert driver is a safe driver!
Rest Towns is a new road safety initiative from AAMI, encouraging drivers to stop and rest in Aussie towns. These places have a lot of recovering themselves to do — so by having a break in them, you’re also giving them a break.
If you’re driving along a popular route, keep an eye and ear out for rest stop recommendations from AAMI. Make sure to take regular breaks on long drives and make a rural town your rest stop.
