TRAFFIC and Highway Patrol officers have continued their focus on road safety detecting drivers allegedly speeding, drunk or drug-affected behind the wheel.
Operation Saturation – a joint initiative between NSW Police and the Centre for Road Safety – is an intensive response to the state’s road toll and involves large deployments of police across NSW.
Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander Assistant Commissioner John Hartley said Operation Saturation was about maximum enforcement to drive down the road toll.
“With the support of the NSW Centre for Road Safety, our officers will be on the road for longer periods enforcing road safety for the benefit of all road users,” Assistant Commissioner Hartley said.
Officers detected a number of high-risk drivers, in possession of drugs, and affected by alcohol over the weekend.
At about 9.40am on Sunday, August 31, police from Traffic and Highway Patrol were conducting Operation Saturation on the Hume Highway, at Yerrinbool, when they stopped a VW Jetta.
After several inquiries police searched the vehicle and allegedly found cannabis and a laser sight for a firearm.
The 29-year-old driver from Marayong was given a field court attendance notice for possessing a prohibited drug and having custody of a laser pointer in a public place.
He is due to appear before Moss Vale Local Court on Tuesday, October 21.
The 23-year-old passenger was found to be an unlawful non-citizen from Montenegro, who allegedly failed to return home after a three-week holiday in May this year.
He was taken to Bowral Police Station where officers from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection detained him.
