On the roads

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY Po­lice will be fo­cus­ing on the ‘fa­tal five’ as part of an on­go­ing traf­fic op­er­a­tion in the next few weeks. Of­fi­cer in Charge of the Whit­sun­day Po­lice Sta­tion, Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Simon Wal­ter, said speed, seat­belts, drink-driv­ing, mo­bile phone use and fa­tigue would all be pri­or­i­ties, as well as ve­hi­cle de­fects.

“This would be a good time for peo­ple to look at their wind­screens and make sure there’s no cracks, make sure their tyres are good and that all their lights and in­di­ca­tors are work­ing,” he said.

Po­lice have con­ducted 318 RBTs and is­sued 13 in­fringe­ment no­tices in­clud­ing four for ex­ces­sive speed dur­ing the op­er­a­tion to date.
