There Is An Easter Warning For All Sydney Drivers

Double demerit points are being enforced by New South Wales Police during the Easter holidays and Anzac Day periods.

Officers will be targeting speeding, mobile phone use, seatbelt and motorcycle offences during Operation Tortoise, a statewide Easter long weekend road safety campaign that starts on Thursday April 18 and will end on Monday April 22.

For the Anzac Day period,  Operation Go Slow will run between Wednesday, April 24 and Sunday, April 28.

NSW Police and Emergency Services Minister David Elliott said police will be out in force across the State to ensure all drivers adhere to speed limits.

"This is an exciting time of year when families get together and enjoy themselves. We want everyone to have a great time during the break.

"Often families hit the road for a holiday with the kids, so we want every motorist to take great care behind the wheel this Easter and Anzac Day and ensure they arrive safely at their destination," Mr Elliott said.
