Posted in Traffic
Thursday, 26 June 2014

A new road safety guide for New South Wales aims to improve motoring habits around school zones by targeting a variety of potential problem areas. Minister for Roads and Freight Duncan Gay launched the guide in a letter to principals of 2,500 primary schools across NSW earlier this month.

Titled 'Road Safety Issues Around Schools', the guide sets out a number of key points for motorists to remember when driving in or around schools. While the principles of the guide are aimed specifically at parents, the safe driving habits they outline can be applied to any NSW driver who may come across a school zone.

Driving long distances in winter: You need to be careful.

Article PhotoDriving for long distances can be an enjoyable experience. Whether you're going on a road trip or simply trying to get from Point A to Point B, the experience of driving at your own pace can be a rewarding one.

However, driving for longer periods of time can also expose you to new hazards and risks such as driver fatigue. It's important for everyone on the road to be practising safe motoring habits, and this is particularly true for those who have a long journey ahead of them.

With the winter months now here, there's even more reason to drive safely at all times. Rainfall, snow and ice can add an extra element to the experience that drivers need to account for. According to the Transport for NSW Centre for Road Safety, in the year ended December 2012, wet surface conditions were a factor in 8,404 crashes. Of these, 51 were fatal, 3,162 resulted in an injury and 5,191 had no casualties.

Meanwhile, snow or ice on the roads was a factor in 80 crashes during that year, 28 of which resulted in injury and 52 with no casualties.
