Po­lice fo­cus on safety

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MONTO po­lice will be crack­ing down on dis­tracted driv­ers this week to cap off the end of traf­fic ed­u­ca­tion month. Phones, chil­dren, make-up, ra­dio and GPS sys­tems can all cause crashes and po­lice urged peo­ple to plan ahead to re­duce the risk of an accident. Last week the fo­cus was speed­ing and po­lice re­minded trav­ellers about fol­low­ing dis­tances, driv­ing to con­di­tions and stop­ping times. “Our area is over-rep­re­sented for se­ri­ous crashes,” Sergeant Glenn Fletcher said.
