Slow Down In Today's Weather

The Bureau of Meteorology has put out a severe weather warning for damaging winds with gusts up to 100 km/h and possible thunderstorms.


VicRoads is using the opportunity to remind motorists about safe driving in extreme weather, especially the need to slow down once roadways are drenched.

  • Leave a greater distance between vehicles
  • Increase awareness of other road users
  • Switch low beam headlights on
  • If visibility is greatly reduced, pull over to wait out the downpour
  • Trailers should be made extra secure especially in gusty conditions on highways
  • Patience is important

If trees or branches have fallen on the road call the SES on 132 500.
