ACT Policing will continue to target dangerous driving around 40kmh work zones after Traffic Operations issued 78 Traffic Infringement Notices (TINs) on Barry Drive yesterday.
Officer in Charge of Traffic Operations Sergeant Rod Anderson said it was important that drivers practised safe driving habits around work zones.
“Speeding through work zones is extremely dangerous and risks the lives of those workers in the area,” Sergeant Anderson said.
“Police would encourage drivers to be mindful of the reduced speed limits through work zones and the increase of traffic flow in and around those areas.”
“It is particularly concerning that 78 TINs that were issued on Barry Drive yesterday despite the presence of highly visible marked police vehicles.”
“Police will continue to enforce speed limits in work zones to ensure the safety of all workers.”
