During the operation, officers will also be engaging with the community in order to alert the public about risky driver behaviour.

Commander of Far South Coast Local Area Command, A/Superintendent VOLF said that the operation aims at reducing the road toll in the area.

“We have seen too many deaths on rural roads this year. Drink-driving and other dangerous behaviour on the roads needs to stop.

“During Operation Chrome 2, our officers will be out in force, conducting random breath tests all over the command, and targeting other risky-behaviours including speeding, not wearing a seatbelt and using a mobile phone.

“They will be in places where you may not expect to see them, so be aware.

“There is no excuse for these types of behaviours and we need to stop people putting their own and other people’s lives at risk on our roads,” A/Superintendent VOLF said. Source: Far South Coast LAC - NSW Police Force
