The RAC has urged motorists to be alert this Easter with general manager of corporate affairs Will Golsby saying WA roads were often the most dangerous on long weekends.
“Easter is a popular time for holidays in regional WA, an area where the road fatality rate is five times higher than Perth metropolitan, so we remind motorists to make safety the top priority,” he said.
Double demerit points are in effect until midnight on Monday, April 2.
This year’s Easter traffic enforcement effort will be strengthened, with the Regional Enforcement Unit joining the police operation for the first time.
This newly established unit will be deployed to country highways, targeting unsafe driving behaviours this Easter long weekend.
Since it commenced patrols on January 15, the Regional Enforcement Unit has stopped nearly 9000 cars, carried out 7,500 breath tests and issued 614 infringements for speeding.
The REU patrols are highly visible with their distinctive Toyota Klugers, and are additional to the day-to-day highway patrols undertaken by regional police officers.
