Since launching the road safety campaign on Friday, police have attended 242 major accidents, charged 159 people with drink driving and issued 3466 speeding tickets during the four-day blitz. All driving offences attracted double demerit points.

NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy said he was disappointed people continued to risk their safety while behind the wheel.

“Unfortunately, four people have died on the roads in three days. While most people are doing the right thing, it is frustrating to see people continue to drink-and-drive or speed, despite our continued appeals,” he said.

“While we will continue to stop those motorists, we need this to be a combined effort with all road users.”

So far this year 286 people have died on NSW roads, slightly above last year’s total.
