ACT Policing will join NSW Police in conducting high-visibility patrols on major arterial roads in and out of Canberra as part of Operation Snow Safe this winter.
As motorists travel to and from the snow fields, police in the capital region will target speeding, impaired driving, seatbelt offences and driver fatigue during the NSW snow season from Saturday, 7 June until Monday 6 October 2014.
ACT Policing and NSW Police will conduct a joint roadside alcohol and drug screening operation during the Queens’s Birthday long weekend. Motorists are reminded that double demerit penalties will be in place for speeding and seatbelt offences, with an additional demerit point for all other offences, from Friday 6 June to Monday 9 June inclusive.
