The Caravan Industry Association of Australia’s ‘Caravan / RV Road Safety’ initiative. In preparation for an expected take up in domestic road trip camping holidays this summer and with over 741,000 registered RV’s, throughout November and December education and awareness will be important in preparing Australians to safely enjoy their holidays. In the coming months, approx. 14 Million nights and 3.3 Million camping trips or more are expected to be taken.
Each day road safety information regarding pre-planning your trip to manage fatigue, appropriate use of rest stops including truck rest areas, vehicle preparation, sharing the road with trucks, UHF communication and towing will be promoted and shared. This information is relevant for all road users regardless of experience.
