Albany Easter Fatigue Road Stop

Posted on: Tuesday, 16 May 2017 at 12:00:00 AM

The Albany Fatigue Road Stop is a joint venture between the Albany RoadWise Committee, Main Roads WA and WA Police which aims to share fatigue information with travellers over the Easter long weekend.

This event has been running every Easter for more than ten years and is a great example of key stakeholders working together to share the road safety message with the community.
 
As part of the event, WA Police pull drivers over for a Random Breath Test (RBT) and RoadWise Committee and local SES volunteers hand out a fatigue information flyer, a bottle of water and an Easter egg.

This year during the four-hour fatigue road stop, more than 1000 vehicles were stopped.
 
In WA in 2015, 16 fatal crashes were fatigue related and 21 people received critical injuries. (Source: https://www.rsc.wa.gov.au/Education-Programs/Safety-Topics/Fatigue)
