Muster drivers well behaved
IMBIL Police Sergeant Terry Kennedy was impressed with Muster patrons after breathalysing thousands of drivers leaving and entering the festival, only to detect two driving over the legal limit.
Imbil police were part of an operation, involving the State Traffic Taskforce, monitoring traffic around the Amamoor Creek State Forest Park during the Optus Gympie Music Muster.
Sgt Kennedy said his crew conducted random breath tests around the Amamoor area and had set up roadside with the drug testing unit on Amamoor Creek Rd, Thursday and Friday nights, as well as Saturday afternoon and Sunday night.
From a couple of thousand breath tests, only two drink drivers were detected and the drug testing unit “didn’t get anyone”.
A few tickets were issued for minor offences such as unregistered vehicles and an unlicensed driver.
“All in all we are extremely happy with the way people conducted themselves on the road during the Muster and as far as we know there hasn’t been any traffic crashes on the roads as well,” Sgt Kennedy said.
“It was a great outcome. It was a good weekend and we were happy with the way the people behaved and they were happy with us.”
