If you’re being tailgated by another driver, keep calm, stick to the speed limit and drive to the conditions.

Tailgating is an offence and Police will issue a ticket for it.

If it’s safe to do so, pull over, and let the other driver pass.

Drivers experiencing any kind of dangerous or illegal behaviour should contact NSW Police.  If you feel your life is in danger or you are in an emergency, call 000. If you want to report harassment or intimidation, call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. If it is safe to do so, drive to the closest police station or flag down a police vehicle if you see one.

As a general rule, you should travel three seconds behind the vehicle in front of you, so you have enough time to avoid a crash.

Emergency+app now available to more than 98 per cent of smart phone users

Emergency services have launched the windows version of the Emergency+app making it available to more than 98 per cent of smartphone users. The Minister for Justice, Michael Keenan, launched the Windows phone version of the Emergency+ smartphone app at the NSW Ambulance in Eveleigh, Sydney. The app was introduced in December 2013 for iOS and Android devices and has now been downloaded more than 270,000 times. With the release of the Windows version, more than 98 per cent of smartphone users can now utilise the app that helps Australians call the right number for help in emergency and non-emergency situations.

Research revealed more than 65 per cent of calls to Triple Zero (000) are made from mobile phones; however, often callers don’t know their exact location, meaning prolonged call-processing times making call-takers unavailable for the next emergency call.

The Emergency+ app provides users with the contact numbers and a short explanation of when to call the non-emergency numbers such as the Police Assistance Line and the SES national number. This is to help members of the public dial the correct number, and reduce the number of calls to the Triple Zero service that should be directed to another service.
When activated, the features of a smartphone will also describe aloud what appears on-screen, so a caller can use the app without seeing it. The app can be downloaded free of charge from the Windows store, Google Play store and Apple App Store, and is available in English, Chinese (traditional and simplified) and Japanese.

Links to download the app can be found at emergencyapp.triplezero.gov.au.
