Motorists are being urged not to be complacent on the roads today, despite the Easter road toll on track to be the lowest in years.

There’s been five deaths across the states and territories, compared with 22 last year.

In Victoria, an unborn baby was killed when a 31-year-old pregnant woman collided with another vehicle on the Midland Highway near Geelong.

Tony Kubeil from the Euroa SES says motorists should take advantage of drive and revive pit stops along the state’s freeways as they return home from Easter trips.

‘We think it’s probably easier to give you a cup of tea or coffee than cut you out of your car,’ he told Justin and Kate.
