According to an article in the Singleton Argus, drivers are being urged to slow down this long weekend in NSW.
In the article, Minister for Police and Emergency Services David Elliott said police will be out in force across the state with high-visibility deployments for Operation Slowdown. And it won’t just be on the roads, with specialist Marine Area Command officers conducting random breath testing and mobile drug testing operations on waterways, as well as vessel inspections across the state.
Police Commissioner Michael Fuller APM said the community can expect to see police conducting enforcement activities both on the road and waterways.
“Operation Slowdown will see our Traffic and Highway Patrol officers targeting speeding, drink and drug driving, driving while fatigued, mobile phone, helmet and other traffic offences,” said Police Commissioner Michael Fuller APM in the article.
“The message is clear – don’t speed or drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol on the roads and waterways, and importantly use safety equipment, such as seat belts and life jackets because we know they really do save lives.
“When it comes to loss of life, the stakes are high. Please consider how your decisions could impact others, because one life lost is too many.”
