What to know before you go: road safety

What to know before you go about road safety.

Checking a phone for just two seconds doubles your risk of crashing. At 100km per hour you will travel 56 meters in just two seconds.

First year drivers are seven times more likely to be involved in a fatal or serious injury crash between the hours of 10pm to 6am. Remember to plan your trip ahead of time.

Exceeding the speed limit by just five kilometres per house increases your risk of a crash by 50 per cent and the risk will increase the faster you drive.

So remember stay safe, look after yourself and others and in an emergency, always call Triple Zero (000).
