It's the month of short weeks and long weekends. School holidays are just around the corner too and families all over the state are planning their trips away from home.

The RAA have developed a very helpful free app - the RAA Rest Stop Locator.

The app is perfect to help you plan your trip. Before leaving home, you can see the best spots to stop for a break. The app provides information on the facilities available at each Rest Stop.

You're able to search by highway, area or your current location. It will also show if the area has toilet, picnic table, BBQ or shade.

At present, the app lists more than 500 rest stops within South Australia. There are plenty of choices for you to take that break when driving on the state's country roads.

Another very useful app is the National Public Toilet Map. Also free for download, it is a more specific app that gives you toilet locations all around Australia.

The RAA recommends that drivers take a break every 2 hours and spend at least 15 minutes outside of the car - walk around, have a drink or something to eat, do something other than driving. Fatigue is the major cause of serious casualty crashes on South Australian road, it's so very important to rest often. The Rest Stop Locator App can help you plan those breaks so that everyone arrives at your destination safe and sound.

The RAA Rest Stop Locator can be downloaded from the iPhone App Store or at www.raa.com.au/reststoplocator
