NSW Police are continuing their high profile traffic enforcement Operation Saturation after targeting errant drivers and dangerous road users across the state including in Parramatta’s CBD on Saturday.
The Motorcycle Response Team issued 20 traffic infringement notices and conducted 59 breath tests during Parramatta patrols.
At four intersections, 12 pedestrian offences were detected and 47 vehicles were detected for parking offences.
A 23-year-old man was detected on the Great Western Highway at Prospect travelling at 135kp/h in an 80kp/h zone. He was stopped and issued a TIN for exceeding speed by more than 45kp/h, his licence was suspended and the vehicle number plates confiscated.
Operation Saturation – funded by the NSW Centre for Road Safety – includes the entire Traffic and Highway Patrol fleet, assisted by local police, in high-visibility patrols on roads across NSW.
The state-wide operation started on Saturday February 7 and will run until February 18.
The Commander of Traffic and Highway Patrol, Acting Assistant Commissioner Stuart Smith said some road users continued to flout the road rules.
“Highway Patrol officers will continue to conduct high visibility patrols across the state ensuring motorists, professional drivers, pedestrians and riders comply with the road regulations.
“It astounds me that we still see people who choose to drive in a manner that risks their own life and that of other innocent road users.
“I make no apologies for ensuring that the full weight of the law will be felt by those we detect.
“A driving licence is a privilege granted to those who have shown they can abide by the road regulations.
“For those who choose to abuse this trust or are prepared to flout the rules severe penalties apply,” said Assistant Commissioner Stuart Smith.
