National Easter Road Blitz: One Fatality Too Many Already

Queensland Police have stepped up their blitz on the Easter Road Toll with one dead on our roads already. Police have narrowed their focus down to anti-social driving behaviour!

Such behaviour includes, but is not limited to, drink driving, speeding, failure to wear seat belts, driving while tired and drug driving. The National Easter Road Safety Campaign commenced shortly after midnight this morning and will carry on through to just before midnight on Monday evening.

Unfortunately Queenslands first Easter road fatality occurred yesterday afternoon. At approximately 2.30pm, two men were involved in a single car accident near the Coominya Connection Road on the Brisbane Valley Highway. A 29-year-old Camira man died at the scene, whilst a 30-year-old Doolandella man was airlifted to the Princess Alexandra Hospital. Police are still investigating the crash and no further information is available at this stage.

The following table shows you the results attained in the less the 12 hours since the beginning of the National Easter Road Safety Campaign early this morning.
