Safe Travel

For those students who are driving to and from your rural placement - we recommend the following actions before your drive to ensure you arrive safely:

  • Make sure your vehicle is safe to drive – your vehicle must be roadworthy and registered (check your tyre pressure, windscreen fluid levels, coolant levels)
  • Make sure you let someone know when you are leaving and when you expect to arrive
    DO NOT TRAVEL AT NIGHT, EARLY MORNING or DUSK
  • Check that you have current and appropriate vehicle insurance (preferably comprehensive insurance)
  • Plan your trip
  • Print directions – you may not have mobile phone coverage at all times on your trip (check your service provider coverage map)
  • Include rest stops on long trips so you don't drive tired 
  • Check for traffic updates and changes to road conditions
  • Look at weather forecasts and beware of flooded roads 

The RACQ website is also a great source of information when you plan your trip: http://www.racq.com.au/cars-and-driving/safety-on-the-road/roadconditions

Talk to your fellow students to see who is driving your way but remember to keep a safe distance if following other cars (especially in wet conditions or on unsealed/dusty roads).
