We have just got back from the 10 hour road trip from our Christmas holidays. The roads yesterday were not busy at all so it was a very easy drive however today we have had to do a 2 hour drive and the traffic is so busy. If anyone is planing to drive in the next couple of days take care as the roads are filling up and there are a lot of L and P plates on the roads. It is very easy to get tired as the sun is beating down on the windscreen, so take lots of breaks, cool drinks and have plenty of sleep the night before. I wish everyone a happy and safe New Year.

  • yeah do be wary! the roads are packed. i had to travel 2hrs away the other day and we crawled through town! it was so good to be back at home


  • Good advice as you dont know who else in on the roads after celebrating this time of year. Stay Safe everybody. Looking foward to the New Year.


  • Agree, be safe on the roads everyone.


  • The roads are incredibly busy and everyone does indeed need to slow down.


  • Such a great reminder – safety comes before a speedy arrival at destination.

    • Take breaks and enjoy the trip – the final destination is not going anywhere!
