Recently, Maroochydore Police conducted high visibility traffic patrols targeting Fatal Five offences in the Maroochydore Police Division.
The view from the random breath testing site on Alexandra Parade was amazing and Sergeant Cuthbert said he was pleased to see no drink driving, however, was disappointed in the number of other offences detected during the two day traffic patrols, in particular motorists driving without a valid driver’s licence.
Police are reminding drivers and owners of vehicles to keep their addresses current with Queensland Transport to ensure registration and licence renewal notices go to the correct address.
“Police continually run these types of operations so we are aware that high numbers of motorists still continue to commit life endangering offences whilst driving,” Sergeant Cuthbert said.
Over the two days there were 1,150 vehicles intercepted, with Traffic Infringement Notices issued for a variety of offences, including driving unregistered vehicles and excessive speeding.
Maroochydore Police will continue to target road users who continually put other drivers at risk but commend those that are also continuing to do the right thing.
