AMI's Driver Reviver - a public event to educate Cantabrians on the connection between driver fatigue and motor vehicle accidents - will take place on Labour Day Monday, October 25.

The event is supported by Fire and Emergency New Zealand, New Zealand Police, St John, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, and Hurunui District Council, and will take place at Hurunui River Rest Area, SH1.

All drivers and passengers on the road between 12-4pm are encouraged to stop in for a complimentary snack and drink from the AMI BBQ Trailer, take a rest on a bean bag and visit the activities onsite to learn more about how to curb the effects of driver fatigue, particularly while on long journeys.
