NSW Motorists Warned Ahead Of Major Road Operation
Motorists are being warned ahead of a major road operation taking place over the long weekend.
NSW Police have reminded drivers that double demerits will be in place from midnight tonight (12.01am September 29) until midnight on Monday (11.59pm October 2).
Officers will be on our roads targeting all speeding, mobile phone, seatbelt and motorcycle-helmet offences, explained Deputy Commissioner Specialist Support Catherine Burn.
"We all know that speeding kills. We all know that looking at your phone means you're not fully focussed on the task at hand," she said.
"We all know that seat belts save lives, and that drink-driving creates a real risk to yourself and everyone else around you.
"This weekend we are urging every road user to really think about the choices you make in order to prevent someone from riding home in the back of an ambulance, or worse.
"Think about the choices you make this weekend, because the consequences of a bad decision can be disastrous for you and other people on our roads."
