Storms, Bushfires…What Hazards Are Ahead?

Posted on: Thursday, 23 January 2020 at 12:00:00 AM

With cyclone season commencing in some regions, bushfires in others and hazards aplenty wherever we travel, it is a timely reminder to check road conditions before departing, as well as driving to conditions whilst travelling.

Many factors can affect road and driving conditions including fires, floods, animals, weather conditions, unsealed roads and roads under maintenance or repair.

It can be challenging to travel on these roads and it is important to plan ahead and drive to the conditions. This includes checking road conditions before heading off, choosing an alternative route if required and taking extra time to ensure a safe journey.
