Meet our Driver of the Week
IN THE quest to make South Burnett roads a safer place, it takes the whole region to get involved.
With the recent introduction of road safety bumper stickers, The South Burnett Times has created a new weekly feature to reward safe drivers.
The Driver of the Week feature is to commend those motorists who have made road safety a priority.
To get involved all you need to do is pick up your road safety bumper sticker from the South Burnett Times office, the Kingaroy Police Station or any of Kingaroy's new car centres.
The cost of the bumper stickers is just a gold coin donation.
All funds raised go towards promoting road safety awareness in the region.
This week our Driver of the Week is Debby Lewis.
Age you got your licence?
Audi TT or Mazda Mx-5
Favourite driving music?
I have an extensive driving collection so that's tricky.
I love anything I can sing my heart out to without anybody listening. Amy Winehouse is always good.
Why are you passionate about road safety?
I witnessed a terrible motorway pile-up years ago and saw how impossible it is to avoid a crash if you're driving too close to the car in front of you. It also made me very aware that when you're driving it only takes one blown out tyre or wildlife on the road to cause a catastrophe, so it's so important to always stay alert.
Best safe driving tip?
Keeping a safe distance from the car in front and always stay aware of your environment and the other drivers around you.
Make regular pit stops to refuel yourself and have a stretch.
Do you rather drive alone or with passengers?
I love driving on my own and cranking up my tunes or listening to a podcast. However, with the right co-pilot, I can share the journey and it can turn the experience into a great road trip adventure.
