TERANG police issued more than 20 infringement notices last week during a campaign targeting low-level speeding.
Sergeant Sean Halley said the campaign was focusing on drivers breaking the speed limit by less than 10km/h.
“Last week we issued 20-plus penalty notices on the Princes Highway and secondary roads, predominantly in 100km/h zones,” he said.
“The aim of the campaign is for drivers to sit on the speed limit and drive to road conditions. The statewide strategy campaign will run for the month of October. We’re finding we’re catching a mixture of locals and business people passing through.”
Sergeant Halley said it was amazing how many people drove between 100km/h and 115km/h.
“We’ve also issued five tickets for 125km/h or more which results in loss of licence for one month, a $397 fine and the loss of four demerit points,” he said.
“Speeding at less than 10km/h above the limit is a $180 fine and the loss of one demerit point while between 10 and 25km/h above the limit is a $289 fine and the loss of three demerit points,” he said.
Sergeant Halley said the sole aim of the campaign was to make driving safer for all road users.
