ACT Policing are reminding motorists to drive safe and sober over the upcoming Canberra Day long weekend, particularly if planning to travel interstate.

Traffic Operations Superintendent Mark Colbran is urging motorists to stay alert and stop every two hours if travelling long distances.

“We want everyone to plan their trips and include stops to combat driver fatigue, so that all drivers will arrive at their destination safe and sound,” said Superintendent Colbran.

“It is better to arrive late than not at all,” he said.

For those people remaining in Canberra to celebrate the holiday, Police will be out targeting all traffic offences with a particular focus on drink driving and speeding this long weekend.
