Police are urging motorists to slow down and drive to the conditions following three separate fatal crashes in the Southern Tablelands and Highlands over the weekend.
The Hume Police District Commander, Superintendent Paul Condon, said police are urging drivers to slow down to ensure everyone reaches their destination safely.
"It's a timely reminder to all drivers and pedestrians to take extra care on our roads. There should be no unnecessary distractions when getting behind the wheel or crossing the road," Supt Condon said.
"Now that travel restrictions are no longer in place, more people are choosing to drive to visit family and friends in regional locations.
"For those who spent significant time in isolation last year, please make sure to drive to the conditions and look after yourselves and other motorists.
"Whenever you get behind the wheel, be mindful of your choices on the roads - make sure you're well rested and have allowed plenty of travel time to get to where you need to be without rushing.
"We want to make sure there are no more fatalities on the roads, and that responsibility begins with you," Supt Condon said.
