Police are urging motorists to slow down and pay attention to speed signs and your speed, particularly with the school holidays upon us and the increase of traffic on our road network.
Remember, speed contributes to the severity of a crash, along with not wearing seat belts, drink or drug driving and driving while tired or distracted.
Expect police anywhere, anytime.
