Highway police target speedsters
TWEED Byron Highway Patrol will be out in force on the Pacific Highway for the next four months as part of Operation National Route One.
The operation spans from Tweed Heads to Newcastle targeting speeding, seatbelts, and fatigue in an effort to minimise road fatalities.
Since January 1, 2009 there have been 67 deaths on the Pacific Highway.
The Tweed-Byron stretch of the highway has been fatality-free for 2012 so far and Sergeant Chad George wants it to stay that way.
"We'll be making a really high profile presence to ensure compliance of the road rules," Sgt George said.
"You can expect to see us on the highway every day.
The operation will end in June.
