The Queensland Police Service's Easter road safety campaign began on April 5 and will run until April 26.

Commissioner Stewart said that anyone travelling on the state's highways can expect to encounter police.

This campaign coincides with the Easter school holidays, a period in which there is a large increase of vehicles on the roads.

Inspector Ian Park, now of Brisbane Police Prosecutions Corps wrote a story about when his personal and professional life collided.

"Personally, I don't think we'll have success on the roads until our road toll is zero. And that's based on my own experience," Inspector Park said.

"I've seen people with iPads set up on their dashboard watching a movie while they're driving. Especially if they know they're going to hit peak hour traffic or slow traffic. I mean, you can still kill someone regardless of the fact that your average speed might only be 10 to 20 kilometres an hour. It can still happen."

The Easter Road Safety campaign is targeting the Fatal Five – speeding, drink/drug driving, fatigue, seat belt use and driver distraction/inattention.
