Police to target road safety

THE latest Gympie district Crime Bulletin has warned police will be targeting road safety over the next couple of months as school holidays bring an increase in the number of vehicles on the region’s roads.

During the last month police across the Gympie District performed more than 7200 random breath tests, with the highest breath alcohol concentration detection being 0.30 per cent in Gympie.

In the same period 800 traffic infringement notices were issued for life endangering offences.

These offences included speeding, failing to wear a seatbelt and using a mobile phone while driving.

There were also 11 disqualified and 40 unlicensed drivers caught by police during the same period.

The Crime Bulletin said police were determined to improve the safety and welfare of all road users by maintaining high visibility on the region’s roads.
