■ TWEED police say they are targeting fuel thieves following a spate of drive-offs from service stations. Police said they would focus their attention on fuel thefts after several local service stations reported people driving off without paying. “If a person fails to pay for fuel they can be charged with a criminal offence known as fraud and be required to appear at the local court,” police said. They said if a person is found guilty of the offence, the driver could receive a criminal conviction which could have a long-term effect on career opportunities, overseas travel and personal reputation. They warned service stations had CCTV cameras and registration plate details were usually recorded.
■ POLICE have warned drivers to slow down and make safe decision this long weekend as double demerits are in place. Police said 154 people had lost their lives on NSW roads so far this year, four more than the same time last year. Double demerits began at midnight Friday night and will finish at 11.59pm on Monday.
