Dou­ble de­mer­its

Rouse Hill Times - - NEWS -

DOU­BLE de­merit points will be in force this Easter from mid­night to­day (April 12) to mid­night Monday and again for the hol­i­day pe­riod from mid­night Thurs­day, April 20 to mid­night Tues­day, April 25, with the State Gov­ern­ment de­ter­mined to re­duce deaths on NSW roads.

“Last year’s 2016 Easter hol­i­day road toll saw two fa­tal­i­ties on NSW roads and this year our goal is zero,” River­stone state Lib­eral MP Kevin Conolly said.

In addition to tar­geted po­lice en­force­ment to de­ter dan­ger­ous be­hav­iour such as speed­ing, drink-driv­ing and non-seat belt use, there will be more ed­u­ca­tion and aware­ness cam­paigns in high-risk lo­ca­tions over the Easter break. “Re­search proves that with ed­u­ca­tion and en­force­ment we can save lives — make ev­ery jour­ney a safe one this Easter,” Mr Conolly said.
