ROAD SAFETY REMINDER

21/09/2016
Local Police would like to remind all school families to take care when using our roads, especially over these school holidays. 
 
The roads around the coast are busy with an influx of visitors and Maroochydore police will be out in force over the holiday period.
 
The community’s safety is our priority and police will continue to target the fatal five which are speeding, drink and drug driving, not wearing a seatbelt, driving while fatigued and driving distracted.
 
Too many Queensland drivers are being distracted while on the road by things like mobile phones, complex sound systems, on-board DVD players and satellite navigation, to name a few.
 
The message is clear these school holidays if motorists continue to make poor choices on our local roads and endanger other road users they can expect a fine and a loss of demerit points.
 
Please remember to plan your trip ahead, take a break, rest, revive and survive.
