Police blitz targets drivers at railway crossings in Tamworth, Werris Creek and Willow Tree

A POLICE operation targeting motorists on and around railway lines will begin on Monday in Tamworth, Werris Creek and Willow Tree.

Warning signs at crossings around town have been flashing for a week, detailing the penalties for illegal behaviour.

Now, a police blitz will see drivers caught doing the wrong thing slapped with fines and loss of demerit points.

Regular patrols will be carried out at level crossings until the blitz finished on February 28.
