WE ARE SICK OF SEEING ROAD CARNAGE
MOST police officers won't tell you about the things they have seen on the job. They won't talk about the times they have attended serious traffic crashes and witnessed disturbing scenes of injury and death. Or the times they have had to drive a devastated family member to the hospital or even worse, the morgue. But they do want you to know they'll do what they can to reduce the chance of serious crashes. Most crashes are caused by excessive speed, drivers affected by drugs and alcohol, distracted drivers – namely those using mobile phones – and unsafe vehicles. The penalties for these offences are costly for a good reason. Local police are always on the lookout for drivers committing the traffic offences that contribute to serious injury and death. Slow down, put your phone down or call a cab and stay safe on the roads.
