POLICE continue to target dangerous driving in Hume, having issued 65 traffic infringement notices in the suburb over two nights in the past week.
Last night and on Wednesday, officers from Woden Patrol, Traffic Operations, and Crime Prevention were out in force targeting dangerous driving and anti-social behaviour.
They conducted 670 screening tests with three drivers recording positive results. They will be summonsed to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.
On Wednesday, several drivers were recorded travelling at excessive speeds with two drivers caught doing in excess of 100kph in the 60 zone on Sheppard Street.
Over the two nights 30 vehicles were issued with defect notices.
Sgt Mark Steel said it is particularly concerning that these offences occurred in such a short time frame, but he is encouraged by the level of support officers received from members of the public.
“This is about highlighting dangerous driving and anti-social behaviour on our roads as a serious issue, which will not be tolerated by police,” he said. “We have received overwhelming support from members of the public through the course of our operation and we will continue to patrol Hume on a regular basis to target dangerous driving”.
