Officer-in-Charge of Traffic, Sergeant Rod Anderson urges the community to think about the consequences of risky driving behaviour.
“Risky driving behaviour such as speeding—low or high range—can have serious consequences for individuals such as loss of life, permanent injury or disability, loss of income, loss of license and monetary penalties.
“I urge people to consider these factors before speeding, for themselves and others who may also be affected,” Sergeant Anderson said.
