Christmas Road Safety Campaign – Day 11

Police detected a motorist travelling 144km in a 70km zone yesterday on Day 11 of the Christmas Road Safety road safety campaign 2015

The driver of the sedan was observed to be speeding along Redland Bay Road, Capalaba.

Officers also detected a station wagon driver travelling 151km in a 100km zone on the Mulligan Highway, Mt Carbine.

Drink driving continues to be a concern for police with a man allegedly recording a BAC of 0.273 on the Wellesley Islands.

Police are expecting a large number of motorists travelling on the roads over the next 24 hours as Queenslanders head home for the start of the working week.

Motorists are being reminded to drive to the conditions particularly with the wet weather across some parts of the state.

Police will be out in force over the holidays focusing on the fatal five: speeding, fatigue, impaired driving (drink and drug), failure to wear a seat belt and distraction/inattention.
