Police plead for road safety
POLICE Minister Neil Roberts and Queensland’s police, fire and ambulance services yesterday launched the annual Christmas Road Safety Campaign with a plea to motorists to take care on the roads.
Mr Roberts said there would be a large increase of traffic across the state with people visiting their loved ones over Christmas.
“The Bligh Government and the state’s police and emergency services want everyone to arrive at their destination and return home, safely,” he said.
“That’s why police will be out in force with their traditional road safety blitz, backed up by ambulance and fire personnel who will respond to emergencies but who, in reality, would rather have no incidents to attend.”
The campaign will run until the end of January.
