HERVEY Bay police attended a series of crashes across the Whale City on Tuesday afternoon and fined two drivers for failing to give way.

About 12.35pm, a silver Kia and a purple Ford collided at the corner of Denmans Camp Rd and Exeter St in Scarness.

No one was injured, but a 54-year-old woman was given a ticket for failing to give way.

Shortly after that, about 1pm, a 23-year-old woman was also given an infringement notice for failing to give way when two vehicles crashed at the intersection of Tavistock and Colyton Sts in Torquay.

Traffic lights at Eli Waters stopped working when they were struck by a bronze Suzuki Swift about 4.15pm.

A 67-year-old female driver had reportedly misjudged a turn and mounted a kerb before crashing into the traffic light pole.

The incident occurred at the intersection of Ibis Bvld and Maryborough-Hervey Bay Rd.

Police have reminded drivers to slow down and concentrate, particularly during the holiday period when there is heavy traffic on the roads.
