Police are clamping down on dangerous driving in the region after recently issuing 15 traffic infringements in just one hour at the Teviot Road upgrades.
The notices were for failing to stop at traffic control lights designed to manage traffic flow at the roadworks.
Jimboomba Police Station officer in charge Senior Sergeant Peter Waugh said officers had received a number of reports about vehicles disobeying traffic control lights on Teviot Road.
“This is an incredibly dangerous behaviour,” he said.
“We are seeing that people are frustrated and becoming impatient at the Teviot Road roadworks, but we want everyone to just take a breath and consider the conditions.
“Leave earlier to reach your destination and plan for all your trips. If we want the infrastructure we need to put up with these inconveniences for the time being.”
Senior Sergeant Waugh said police would use a variety of high visibility and covert operations to curb traffic infringements.
“We are targeting any life-endangering offences on the roads,” he said. “We will see an increase in traffic and there will be an increase in police presence leading up to and throughout the holiday period.”
According to a Logan City Council statement of works, the Teviot Road upgrades are expected to be complete by late 2016.
