Police 'implore' drivers to drive with diligence

An 18-year-old man was charged with driving whilst disqualified (second offence) when he was stopped for a stationary random breath test on Hume Highway, Lansvale part of Operation Go Slow, the state's ANZAC weekend road safety operation,

Officers also discovered he was a disqualified driver. The man was formally refused bail and is due to reappear in Fairfield Local Court today (Friday, April 26).

Police are pleading with drivers to take care on the roads with six lives lost on NSW roads in two days.

Officers across NSW will be targeting all speeding, mobile phone, seatbelt and motorcycle/helmet offences, which will attract double demerit points.

Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy said he's very disturbed by the fact that six people have lost their lives in a matter of hours.

"I implore people to pay attention when they are behind the wheel and drive with diligence. Ensure you are well-rested and drive to the conditions of the road," he said.

Operation Go Slow will run until 11.59pm on Sunday, April 28.
