Arrive alive this Easter period

NSW Police are warning motorists to take it easy over the Easter period with double demerits in place from midnight Thursday April 18.

Acting Inspector/ OIC Young, Michael Madgwick encourages motorists to take care while travelling and make safety your first priority.

"Police encourage all families travelling over the Easter weekend period to allow yourself plenty of time to travel so you arrive safely." said A/Inspector Madgwick.
