Keep calm and drive safe

1 min read

As drivers in Canterbury prepare for the long weekend, Road Policing staff across the District will be undertaking Operation Drive Safe. 
The aim of Operation Drive Safe, which will run on 28-29 March, is to reinforce positive driving behaviour, with a view to reducing fatal and serious injury crashes.  
“The week prior to a holiday weekend is an opportunity for Police to reinforce safe driving messages before drivers undertake long distance trips, says Senior Constable Brent Cosgrove. 
"We want to remind all drivers planning to get away for the weekend to share the driving, take regular breaks and drive alert.”
In the days leading up to Easter, drivers can expect to be stopped at checkpoints where Police staff will share road safety messages and promotional material on safer driving.
