Road rules

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

OF­FI­CER in charge of the Whit­sun­day Sta­tion Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Barry Haran said the com­mit­ment by Whit­sun­day Po­lice to road safety oper­a­tion ‘Ra­di­ata’ made quite an im­pact on lo­cal mo­torists bla­tantly break­ing the road rules.

In to­tal, 83 traf­fic tick­ets were is­sued over the past week, in­clud­ing 11 for mo­bile phone use and 24 for seat belt of­fences.

Act Snr Sgt Haran said it was dis­ap­point­ing that so many people dis­re­garded their own safety by not wear­ing a seat belt.

On a pos­i­tive note, of the 344 RBTs con­ducted, only one lo­cal woman tested pos­i­tive with a read­ing of 0.122 per cent.
