Breaking the law? You’re more likely to get caught, says cops

Share Canberra's trusted news:

WITH less traffic on the road, Canberra police say motorists are more likely to get caught doing the wrong thing. 

“Because there is less traffic on the roads, police will be paying a lot more attention,” says the officer in charge of traffic operations, detective station sergeant Marcus Boorman

“Your chances of getting caught not wearing a seatbelt have increased.

“While there may be less traffic on the roads given the current social distancing and self-isolation, less traffic doesn’t mean you go faster. Regardless of how much traffic is on the roads, please always drive safely and obey the speed limit.

“Focus on what you’re doing. We all have plenty to worry about, but when you’re driving, that should be your sole focus. Just drive safely.

“Only be on the road because you have to do essential things. We’re on the road because we have to be.”
