Police out and about on the roads day and night

MORE than 550 breath tests were carried out in the past week, with police keeping a watchful eye on drivers across the Fraser Coast.

Nine drink-drivers were caught, along with more than 45 tickets issued for driving offences, and six traffic crashes reported, all in the Hervey Bay area.

Sergeant Paul Jervis said injuries were reported from two of the crashes.

Road safety is a key priority for the Bay and Sgt Jervis said he hoped the statistics would reflect a community effort to improve road safety.

The number of infringements showed drivers could expect to meet police on the roads anywhere, anytime.

"It just reinforces that the police are out there at all times of the day... drivers can expect to meet police."
