Police conducting additional roadside tests during Easter long weekend
POLICE officers within the Mackay District will be conducting additional roadside tests (RDT) to keep motorists safe during the Easter long weekend.
Road users are reminded that officers will be on the roads for the Easter long weekend as part of a high visibility presence enforcing the Fatal Five and detecting traffic offences.
Remember, every time you get behind the wheel of a car you should expect to get intercepted by police.
At every intercept, you could be subject to a roadside breath test and an RDT.
Driving whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs is not worth the risk.
It can lead to tragic consequences, serious charges and the immediate suspension of your drivers licence.
