Motorists are taking no notice to speed warnings being issued by police, despite double demerit points during ‘Operation Safe Arrival’.

Police in the Chifley area command have charged 169 drivers so far with speeding offences and this is an increase on the total of 143 from last year.

While general offences are down over the Christmas period, drivers are still exceeding recommended speeds issued on regional roads.

Highway Patrol Sergeant Bob Moulden said police are still being vigilant in targeting holiday motorists.

“Police are still sending out the warning that Operation Safe Arrival is still in full swing so motorists should slow down when they are taking to the roads,” he said.

“Speeding is of particular concern to police at the moment because of the volume of traffic over the holidays.”
