Tasmania Police launches statewide enforcement Day of Action
Tasmania Police will conduct a statewide enforcement Day of Action tomorrow, as part of its National Road Safety Week efforts.
Inspector Kathy Bennett said police across Tasmania will be increasing high visibility patrols and conducting targeted operations as part of the blitz.
“Our goal is to ensure everyone on the road is following the rules, so we can all be safer,” she said.
“Across all areas of the state we’ll be cracking down on those dangerous fatal five offences including speeding, seat belts, mobile phone use and drink and drug driving.”
“This is about showing those who do the wrong thing that dangerous driving and irresponsible road behaviour will not be tolerated.”
“Already this year we’ve had 12 people lose their lives on Tasmanian roads, and we’ve had almost 140 people seriously injured in crashes.”
“Road safety is everyone’s responsibility, and we need to work together and follow the rules to prevent crashes and keep our roads safe.”
