All road users in NSW should be able to arrive safely at their destinations.
Travelling is not a great move in basketball, nor is it a good idea when you’re tired. If you’re driving home after the game, take a break or swap drivers.
Basketball NSW would like to remind our members to always Stop, Revive, Survive when it comes to travelling on NSW roads. With summer road-trips still locked in on many of our calendars and the start of the basketball season, now is the time to remind yourself of how to detect the early warning signs of fatigue.
Did you know?
- Fatigue is one of the big three killers on NSW roads
- Fatigue-related crashes are twice as likely to be fatal – drivers who are asleep can’t brake
- From 2013 to 2017, more people in NSW died in fatigue-related crashes than drink driving crashes
- Being awake for about 17 hours has a similar effect on performance as a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.05
