Driving with locusts

Victoria is facing one of the biggest locust plagues in 75 years and locusts can be a road hazard.

The Department of Primary industries (DPI) website has detailed and useful information about the locust plague, including regular situation updates.

The DPI has published information about staying safe when driving through a swarm of locusts.

The information highlights how locusts can affect driving and what to do in those situations.

An important tip is that if you are having trouble seeing the road because of locusts, reduce your speed by slowing down gradually, and if necessary stop where it is safe to do so.
