Coffee Stop

Free Coffee For DriverCoffee Stop involves roadhouses and service stations providing free coffee/tea to drivers and has been operating since 1993. The program aims to reduce the incidence of driver fatigue amongst motorists travelling in regional Western Australia. Coffee Stop is a free service provided by the participating roadhouses/service stations to the community of Western Australia.

Driver fatigue has been recognised as a major contributing factor to road trauma in Western Australia. Coffee Stop provides an incentive for motorists to take a break from driving and therefore reduce the likelihood of fatigue related road trauma.

The cost of providing tea, instant coffee, sugar, milk and other materials is met by the roadhouse/service station. This is often provided as a designated refreshment station inside the roadhouse/service station.

Free coffee/tea is provided for the driver only, not for all passengers in the vehicle.

There are currently 25 Coffee Stop locations throughout the State.

Coffee Stop News

The WALGA RoadWise Program would like to recognise its newest Coffee Stop participant.

Last month the Tenterden Top-Up, located at the corner of Albany Highway and Brooking Street in Tenterden, signed up to participate in the Coffee Stop program, providing motorists with another location in the Great Southern to stop, take a break and enjoy a free cup of coffee.
 
Deanne Wills, part-owner of the Tenterden Top-Up, expressed the importance of being a part of the Coffee Stop program, helping to combat fatigue related road trauma.

“We see so many people come in clearly showing signs of fatigue. We just want to make sure everyone gets where they’re going safely,” said Deanne.
 
The Tenterden Top-Up joins a number of participating Coffee Stop providers located around the state, providing travellers with a free cup of coffee and a chance to prevent the onset of fatigue.
