MOTORISTS are being reminded by police to get adequate rest before travelling long distances.
West police media liaison officer Naina Ragigia issued the reminder after two separate fatal road accidents in the division earlier this week.
"Police wish to advise the general public to be mindful whilst using the road, especially drivers who have been driving for long hours or early hours in the morning," she said.
"Driver fatigue is also a cause of accidents and drivers need to have adequate rest before going on the road. Passengers are also urged to wear seat belts whilst travelling in vehicles for their own safety." Two people lost their lives on the road earlier this week, including a one-year-old.
