Care for others on road

CALLING on “everyone to play their part” in behaving responsibly and to look out for their mates, Auburn Police Acting Crime Manager, Detective Inspector Karl Leis has also warned that police would not tolerate alcohol-related crime or anti-social behaviour over the festive season.

In any other year, the lead up to Christmas would be packed with work and family functions, however last week’s outbreak and lock-down in Adelaide were a harsh reminder of the ongoing corona-novel virus risk.
While many restrictions in NSW have relaxed, there is still a limit of 20 visitors at a time in private residences as well as curbs on the numbers allowed at restaurants, function centres and outdoor events in public spaces.
Moving through this phase of the pandemic, Insp Leis has urged communities to work with them to ensure compliance with current Public Health Orders.
“We want everyone to have an enjoyable and safe Christmas, especially after the year we have had, so celebrate responsibly, drink in moderation and look after one another,” he said.
“Drivers and riders should expect to see more police on roads and highways, and we make no apologies for enforcing the road rules to keep people safe.
“Traditionally, we see more people on the roads, and out and about visiting family and friends during the festive season. It should be a time that is remembered for all the right reasons, so we urge all road users to obey the road rules and exercise extra caution.
“Road safety is everyone’s responsibility. If every driver or rider takes personal responsibility for their actions, it will save lives.”
