For over 27 years, TOLL Driver Reviver has been a national campaign with one objective: to reduce road collisions by alleviating driver fatigue.
Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) volunteers and Lions Club members operate sites around Victoria on holiday weekends and peak traffic days offering motorists a safe place to stop and refresh.
VICSES volunteers will offer free coffee, tea and snacks at roadside locations over the Easter break to encourage drivers to stop, rest and refresh, in an effort to ensure they can arrive safely at their destination.
In the last 12 months, VICSES volunteers have responded to more than 1300 road rescues across the state.
We would much rather serve you a cup of tea, than cut you out of a car.
Tips for driving
You can learn more information about driver fatigue on the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) website.
