Article PhotoAccording to Transport for NSW, drink driving is a factor in around 20 per cent of all fatal accidents in the state, but a recent campaign has highlighted the improving attitudes of motorists.

Operation Drink Drive 2 was conducted in early November, with authorities stopping and breath-testing drivers on NSW's major highways as well as suburban and country roads. This year saw the operation open its net wider to test more motorists across a larger catchment area.

Article PhotoThere is no doubt that the freight industry is one of the most important sectors for NSW.

It is vital for truck operators and drivers to ensure their vehicles are safe and compliant and that the green slip and registration is up to date.

For all the benefits that this industry brings to NSW, there are also a number of road-related issues. It is important for the government and police to be vigilant to ensure the safety of all road users.

The latest example of this has recently wrapped up - Operation Shield. The collaboration between Joint Heavy Vehicle Taskforce Officers from the NSW Police Force Traffic & Highway Patrol Command and Maritime Services Inspectors saw heavy vehicles checked at 15 locations across the state during the first week of December.

Drug driving a major issue for NSW authorities

Friday, 05 December 2014

Article PhotoOver the past few years, NSW authorities have had a major focus on drink driving. However, a new threat has emerged that will need serious attention in the years ahead - drug driving.

It is important to remember that your CTP insurance will cover you if you were in an incident with a drug driver, but the circumstances are less clear if you are the party in the wrong.

Drug driving involves motorists driving after taking one of the following substances: cannabis, methamphetamine, ecstasy, cocaine or an overdose of individual prescription medicines. However, many drivers have a combination of two or more in their system.

Authorities are encountering more drivers who are under the influence and are a danger to other road users.
