We often sign off with the words… drive safely. And here’s another little reminder from one of our feature writers. Carol and Kevin Haberle  were out for a leisurely drive to enjoy the snow on Cradle Mountain yesterday. Another unfortunate driver was lucky to have them come to the rescue!

Drive Safely - Tasmanian Roads in Winter

In one of Carol’s recent articles about winter, she shared these very wise words…

Note ~ in winter, many of our roads are subject to frost, ice and snow. Please drive safely to road conditions. Exercise particular caution when you see road signs warning of ‘black ice’, especially in the mornings. Don’t forget to use headlights in heavy rain, or even when foggy or misty. Slow down, drive to recommended speed limits, and be alert for wildlife. Much of our wildlife comes out to forage for food in the cooler seasons. Unfortunately, our native wildlife do not have any road sense.

So take care on our roads and please… drive safely!!
