It may seem like common sense, but all drivers have a duty of care to their passengers. This applies on our bushwalks too. To clarify this, the following has been added to the Leader Guidelines:
In terms of the potential of major injury or death, driving to and from the walk is probably the riskiest part of bushwalking. Drivers should put the safety of their passengers (their fellow bushwalkers) first. Stop or share the driving if tired or unwell.
Due to post-walk fatigue, drivers should be ‘Sober Bob’ and refrain from alcohol and other drugs.
As a passenger, please inform the driver to slow down or pull over if you feel uncomfortable or unsafe.
