Great Southern Herald - - News - Se­nior Sergeant Si­mon Un­der­wood

Sev­eral Katan­ning mo­torists this Easter re­ceived an un­ex­pected sur­prise after be­ing stopped by Katan­ning po­lice for their man­ner of driv­ing.

To pro­mote and en­cour­age safe driv­ing dur­ing the re­cent Easter long week­end, Dil­ley’s Elec­tri­cal Ser­vice part­nered with Katan­ning po­lice to pro­vide fuel vouch­ers to those driv­ers dis­play­ing safe be­hav­iour.

Se­nior Con­sta­ble Eri Ik­haz­ali said the ini­tia­tive was de­signed to re­in­force and re­ward safe driv­ing.

At the con­clu­sion of the Easter long week­end, Katan­ning po­lice con­ducted ran­dom breath test­ing and other strate­gies de­signed to en­sure safe driv­ing, with only a min­i­mal num­ber of traf­fic in­fringe­ments no­tices is­sued.

No drink driv­ers were de­tected and there were no se­ri­ous road crashes.

This is a fan­tas­tic re­sult for the wider Katan­ning com­mu­nity and for those vis­it­ing our com­mu­nity dur­ing the Easter hol­i­days.
