Focus on fatal five across Lowood
SPEED, impaired driving, seat belts, fatigue and inattention continue to be the target of police across the state and Lowood is no exception. Lowood Police Station officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Bruce Peel is urging drivers to be aware on the fatal five. “The fatal five behaviours contribute to most fatal and injury crashes on our roads,” he said.
Last week, a 19-year-old Lowood man was intercepted by police on the Brisbane Valley Highway and charged with drink driving after returning a blood alcohol reading of 0.149 per cent. He was served with a notice to appear in the Ipswich Magistrates Court on May 31. Another man was arrested by police after crashing his car at One Mile on Monday, May 6. The 33-year-old Laidley man was tracked by the police dog unit and charged with several offences including public nuisance, driving whilst under the influence of liquor or a drug and failing to provide a roadside breath test.
