    You can drive at the maximum posted speed limit on any given road, so long as your GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) does not exceed 12 tonnes.
  • Is it dangerous to drive on Tasmanian roads after Sunset?
    Per kilometre, more animals die on Tasmanian roads than anywhere else in the world. The easiest way to avoid danger to yourself, your passengers and your vehicle and also avoid adding to this statistic is to only travel during the day. Local wildlife is far more active between sunset and sunrise, so if you must travel at night, drive carefully and at a lower speed. If you drive below 80 km/hr you will be half as likely to hit an animal. If you do hit an animal: - Stop if it is safe to do so to check yourself, your passengers and your vehicle for damage - If there is any damage to the car, please contact us as soon as possible. - If the animal is still alive, you can Bonorong Wildlife Rescue Service on 0447 264 625 (0447 ANI MAL) for advice on what to do. - If the animal is dead, make sure it is clear of the road so it does not invite scavengers such as the Tasmanian Devil onto the road to also be hit by cars. Please only attempt to stop if it is safe to do so. You can't help if you are in danger yourself.
