Easter blitz on roads
WITH the school holidays now in full swing, police are pleading with motorists to drive sensibly this Easter.
Childers Police Sergeant Geoff Fay urged all motorists to show patience and care on the roads and warned that there would be an increase in police enforcement throughout the Easter period.
Sgt Fay said police would be proactively patrolling to target the “fatal five” biggest dangers on the road, particularly speeding and drink driving, and traffic operations would continue during the month, including over the Anzac Day long weekend.
“Speed cameras will be deployed in every district across Queensland,” he said.
“Speed limits will be enforced and anyone failing to abide by the road rules can expect a fine and the loss of demerit points.”
Sgt Fay stressed the importance of taking the weather and traffic into account, and being patient.
“Drive to conditions, especially with the roads being busier than usual,” he said.
“Don’t try to get to your destination in one day if you’re doing a long trip – take regular rest breaks.”
