Motorists are being urged to stay safe on the roads during New Years celebrations.
Police are set to conduct a high amount of visibility and covert operations throughout the region, and will be heavily focusing on the Fatal Five – consisting of speeding, drink and drug driving, distraction and inattention, failure to wear a seat belt, and driving while fatigued – this weekend.
Jimboomba Police Station officer in charge Senior Sergeant Peter Waugh said officers will thoroughly be patrolling and monitoring the streets – especially during New Years celebrations – even though traffic has been “relatively good” during Christmas.
“We are asking the public to heed warnings and be aware the roads will be busy over the remainder of the festive season,” he said.
“Despite our high visibility operations we have noted a high number of speeding and hooning activities across the region.
“There have been acts of stupidity and motorists markedly over the speed limit.
“No latitude will be given to people committing these stupid and dangerous acts.”
