Maroochydore Police target Fatal Five offences to reduce road trauma

Maroochydore Police will continue to enforce and remind motorists of the Fatal Five

Across the weekend of January 11, Maroochydore Police conducted high visibility traffic patrols targeting Fatal Five offences in the Maroochydore Police Division.

Sergeant Brad Cuthbert from Maroochydore Police Station said it was great to see the majority of the community being responsible behind the wheel, with more than 600 random breath tests conducted over the two day period.

As a result, one driver was charged with high range drink driving and another driver issued an infringement notice for a learner driver allegedly  driving unaccompanied.

“There is no place for drivers who are affected by alcohol on our roads,” Sergeant Cuthbert said.

“Drivers must realise that they have a responsibility to themselves, their passengers and every other road user when they get behind the wheel.

“The police commitment in targeting the minority who take the chance to drive while affected by alcohol and/or drugs will continue.

“If you take that chance, you will be caught.”

Maroochydore Police will continue to target Fatal Five offences to reduce road trauma on our roads during January as part of the Christmas Road Safety Campaign, Operation Sleigh.
