ROAD users are encouraged to look out for each other while travelling over Easter, ahead of a state-wide police operation.
Easter Operation 2021 will begin at 12.01am tomorrow (Thursday April 1 2021) and run until 11:59pm on Monday April 5 2021.
Double-demerit points are in force throughout the period for speeding, seatbelt, mobile phone and motorcycle helmet offences.
Police will also be targeting other high-risk driver behaviour, including the Four Ds: drink, drug, dangerous and distracted driving.
Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander, Assistant Commissioner Karen Webb, is reminding road users to be extra careful, with roads expected to be busy over the long weekend.
“With COVID19 restricting travel last Easter, we expect people to take full advantage of being able to holiday across NSW and interstate this year,” Assistant Commissioner Webb said.
“We want you to enjoy our beautiful state, but please drive carefully, particularly where roads may be unfamiliar.
“At the heart of our policing is always public safety. We want all of you to arrive at your destination and enjoy Easter with loved ones.”
Motorists should plan their trip in advance using livetraffic.com or by visiting the SES website.
