Toll Driver Reviver
Volunteers saving lives across Australia
Toll Driver Reviver is a community program that has been operating in Australia for more than 28 years. Powered by volunteers from a wide range of service organisations and community groups, members give up their own time to promote road safety and help to reduce the road toll.
Fatigue is one of the biggest causes of fatalities on our roads, causing between 20 to 30 per cent of fatal road accidents around Australia — even higher in rural areas. Our rest stops provide drivers and their passengers with a place to take a break, particularly on long trips.
The partnership between Driver Reviver and Toll is built on a joint commitment to road safety and the belief that all injuries are preventable and everyone has the right to get home safely. Toll’s professional drivers spend more time on Australian roads than anyone else and are acutely aware of the role fatigue plays in road safety.
In our long history, volunteers from organisations such as Lions Clubs, State Emergency Service (SES), Volunteer Rescue Association (VRA) and the Rural Fire Service (RFS), have served more than 23 million cups of tea and coffee, boiled more than five million litres of water, and provided drivers and their families with more than 27 million snacks.
There are 175 Toll Driver Reviver sites across Australia.
The majority of our sites operate on public holidays and school holidays and are an ideal place to take a break, especially on a long journey. Some sites, such as Avon Downs in NT, are open every day.
Volunteers from a range of regional community groups will happily provide you with a free cup of Bushells tea or coffee and an Arnott’s biscuit, but most importantly a chance to revive so you reach your destination safely. Some sites are able to offer a broader range of refreshments.
Government agencies in each state and territory support the Toll Driver Reviver volunteers. This support may include essential safety guidelines, recommendation and approval of site locations, use of rest areas, toilet facilities, shelter and power.
