Road Safety

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

PO­LICE are ex­pect­ing an in­crease in traf­fic on roads within the Proser­pine area this week­end, due to it be­ing the last long week­end of the year as well as end of school hol­i­days. With that in mind, Of­fi­cer in Charge of the Proser­pine Po­lice Sta­tion, Sergeant Nathan Blain, is urg­ing mo­torists to fac­tor in pos­si­ble de­lays and con­ges­tion when plan­ning their travel, “so as not to put them­selves in a po­si­tion where they are tempted to speed or make other un­safe de­ci­sions to get to their des­ti­na­tion on time”.

Sgt Blain said po­lice would be ac­tively tar­get­ing road safety over the com­ing weeks in an at­tempt to pre­vent road crashes.
