Police cracking down for the Easter long weekend

TOO many incidents have already been reported on Queensland roads this Easter and Kingaroy police warn they are cracking down.

In the last two days 68 people were injured on Queensland roads and one died.

Almost 4000 infringements have been handed out for a wide variety of offences and more than 25,000 Random Breath Tests have been performed since the beginning of the Easter long weekend.

This year officers will be out in force and determined to drive statistics down.

Kingaroy Police Constable Chris Barron said an operation targeting traffic offences was in place for the long weekend. 

"It's focused on targeting the Fatal Five," he said.

Constable Barron said speeding, drink and drug driving, failure to wear a seatbelt and driving while fatigued would all be targeted in the weekend operation.

"We're trying to reduce the amount of crashes on our roads," he said.

Constable Barron said random breath testing sites and high visibility patrols would be out on highways and all main roads.

"If people are heading away, watch fatigue and don't drink," he said.
