WA Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan has jumped on board with Fairfax WA’s Arrive Alive road safety campaign in a bid to help save the lives of drivers taking to the roads in WA this Easter weekend.
Commissioner O'Callaghan took questions from the public about road safety and the 2015 Easter police campaign Operation Crossroads using the hashtag #ArriveAliveChat on Twitter.
Last year 184 lives were lost on WA roads, and 102 in regional areas, the highest number in four years.
This year Fairfax WA, the publisher of this website, is running a road safety campaign called Arrive Alive to help to try and reduce the road toll.
Throughout the year we have been publishing stories about road safety in our newspaper and on our website.
Mr O’Callaghan joined the police force after he finished high school and graduated as Dux of his police academy class in 1976.
During his many years in the police force Mr O’Callaghan has spent time in the Manjimup Traffic office and the Perth Traffic Branch before being promoted to Police Commissioner in 2004.
We hope that together we can increase the amount of people arriving alive to their destination in 2015.
