It's a Trucker's Life at the Shire of Derby/West Kimberley Driver Reviver Station

It’s nothing unusual to see 50 metre-plus rigs driving the Kimberley highways. But it’s a bit of a surprise when they stop for a cuppa and chat.

This rig was on its way to refuel the Kimberley, so the Shire of Derby/West Kimberley Driver Reviver station was a great place for Darren the trucker to stop and refuel too.

Approximately 20 vehicles were served during the midweek Driver Reviver Station, set up about half way between Derby and Broome.

The Driver Reviver Program is a community initiative operated nationally by volunteers. The Program aims to reduce the onset of driver fatigue by encouraging travellers to take regular breaks in their journey by visiting an operating site for a free cup of coffee or tea, a biscuit and most importantly, a chance to stop and revive so drivers reach their destination safely.

If you are heading away for the school holidays (which start on Saturday, 30 June), plan ahead and be sure to stop for a break from driving at least every two hours. Why not stop at one of the Driver Reviver stations or Coffee Stop locations? Find out more at http://www.roadwise.asn.au/driver-reviver.aspx or http://www.roadwise.asn.au/coffee-stop.aspx
