Travelling out of Auckland

Before you begin that epic road trip out of Auckland, make sure you're prepped for the journey and plan ahead to minimise the risk of fatigue.

Keep an eye out for these warning signs when taking a long trip

Driver fatigue

Fatigue can happen to drivers long before they fall asleep at the wheel. Fatigue is tiredness, weariness or exhaustion and it can affect driver’s reaction time and ability to focus on the road and traffic around them.


Remember to drive safely within speed limits and to the conditions. The faster you travel, the less time you have to respond to hazards – and if you crash the impact will be greater, resulting in more severe injuries.
