The weekend provided the official start to summer and the silly season.
With holiday-makers beginning to plan their journeys, Junee police have reminded the community to observe the safest driving practices.
“Officers will be out in force throughout the Christmas and New Year’s season, making sure that drivers are keeping the roads safe for everyone,” said Junee’s Inspector Rob Vergano.
“We want all our local people to arrive safely and to get home safely.”
Inspector Vergano said everyone planning to travel should make sure their vehicle was roadworthy and that they allowed enough time for adequate rest breaks – every two hours – to avoid fatigue.
“Don’t try to drive long distances in one hit,” he said.
Inspector Vergano also encouraged anyone thinking about having a few drinks to make sure they did not drive while affected by alcohol.
Instead, Inspector Vergano suggested organising a lift, calling a cab, or using one of the town’s hotel courtesy buses.
