Tasmania Police officers are asking drivers to keep the ‘Fatal Five’ in mind when they’re driving during this Christmas and New Year period.
Police will be out in numbers as part of Operation Crossroads to enforce and encourage safe driving behaviour in what is traditionally a high crash period.
To help ensure a safe Christmas and New Year for Tasmania’s road users, police will be conducting Operation Crossroads which focuses on the ‘Fatal Five’ contributors to road deaths:
Alcohol and drugs
As part of the operation police will be conducting random breath tests and speed enforcement operations at various locations all around the State.
