  • OPERATION SAFE HOLIDAYS



    Zero!  That's the number South Australia Police (SAPOL) want to see when the Christmas holiday road toll data is finalised.

    The plea for a zero toll came as SAPOL launched its annual festive season road safety operation today.

    Operation Safe Holidays will this year see police focus on seatbelt use as well as detecting motorists speeding on rural roads, using their mobile phones or driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

    Police data shows the most likely time to be involved in a serious casualty crash is in the days immediately prior to Christmas, especially on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday between the times of 2pm and 10pm.

    On Christmas Day, the riskiest time on the roads is between midday and 8pm.

    The Motor Accident Commission (MAC) supports SAPOL's Operation Safe Holidays and General Manager Road Safety Michael Cornish said MAC's Drink Drive and Fatigue campaigns would be running over the same period.

    "It's incomprehensible that some motorists are still taking risks such as drink driving, driving without a seatbelt, ignoring speed limits, or driving while using a mobile phone," Mr Cornish said.  "These are all bad decisions that lead to fatalities and serious injuries.

    "Fatigue is also a high risk on our roads during the holiday period so MAC reminds drivers to rest 15 minutes every two hours when travelling longer distances. This festive period, we don't want to see any trauma on our roads. The best gift you can give your family and friends, is to arrive safely," he said.

    Operation Safe Holidays runs from Friday, 12 December until Monday, 26 January 2015.

    South Australia Police will also be involved with Operation Crossroads, the national road safety initiative coordinated by the Australian New Zealand Policing Advisory Agency (ANZPAA) that runs for 12 days of over Christmas and the New Year.
