Another police operation targeting road trauma

RURAL road trauma is the focus of a state-wide police operation launching this weekend.

Operation Chrome will be in place throughout the Southern Region from today, Friday, August 16 through to Sunday,  August 18.

Police will work alongside Traffic and Highway Patrol officers, providing a coordinated effort to reducing rural road trauma throughout the region.

Drivers and riders should expect to see more police on rural roads and highways over the coming days, targeting risky driver behaviours.

Southern Region Commander, Assistant Commissioner Joe Cassar APM said reducing rural road trauma is a priority for police right across NSW.

"Our primary aim is to stop fatal crashes before they happen. To do that, we make no apologies for enforcing the road rules that are the biggest contributors to fatal crashes," Assistant Commissioner Cassar said.

"Our officers will be out and about this weekend, focusing on roads in rural areas that are claiming far too many lives.

"Road safety is everyone's responsibility. If every driver or rider takes personal responsibility for their actions, it will save lives. It's that simple."
