Operation Crossroads Final Results

The Christmas Holiday Road Toll reporting period has now concluded nationally.  Operation Crossroads was conducted between Sunday, 23 December 2012 and Thursday, 3 January 2013 (12 days in total). 

With the loss of 3 lives over this holiday period, police would ask the motoring public to continue to be vigilant and drive responsibly; no one has the right to drive dangerously on our roads.  Police will continue to be out in force on our roads to combat offending behaviours. 

Remember the fatal five: Speed, Seatbelts, Alcohol & Illicit Drugs, Distraction, and Fatigue.
