DRIVERS are still speeding, drink-driving and not wearing seatbelts and the region recorded three road deaths as of last night.
In the Western region, which covers the Oxley, Barwon and New England local area commands, seven people were injured in 11 major crashes up until Saturday night.
Police also conducted 4174 random breath-tests and laid eight drink-driving charges. Seven people were also found to not be wearing seatbelts.
One hundred and thirty-four drivers were detected speeding, as of the second day of Operation Slow Down.
Eight people were killed on NSW roads this long weekend, including three in a single-vehicle accident at Maules Creek.
“It’s disappointing that, despite our many warnings, more than 1200 road users were detected speeding in the first 24 hours of Operation Slow Down,” acting traffic and highway patrol operations commander Acting Superintendent Mark Cook said.
“No deadline is worth dying for.
“We continue to urge anyone using our roads this weekend to stay within the speed limit, take regular breaks, drive to conditions, and ensure everyone in the car is properly restrained.
“We also remind people that it is illegal and dangerous to drink and drive, or to use handheld electronic devices while behind the wheel – so, for your own safety, please don’t.”
Double demerit points remain in place until 11.59pm today.
