To all Victorians,
Please take care on the roads this long weekend.
Long weekends are notorious for an increase in the number of people coming into our emergency department as a result of road trauma, with more people driving, often on roads they are unfamiliar with.
As the busiest trauma centre in Australia, we see far too many lives changed as a result of accidents on our roads.
We see the devastating affects these traumas not only have on our patients, but their family and friends as well.
Please slow down on the road, take a rest if you need to and drive carefully.
Wishing you a safe and happy Easter.
