Aim of RBT is to be anywhere, anytime - Rockhampton police

THE Bulletin has received a number of calls and social media reports about an RBT currently being conducted on the Capricorn Hwy, causing a delay in traffic.

READERS REPORT: Traffic issues between Gracemere and Rocky

Rockhampton's Road Policing Unit Senior sergeant Ewan Findlater told the Bulletin this morning that the aim of the RBT strategy was to be anywhere at any time.

"Previously we've conducted similar interception sites on the Capricorn Hwy during mid-week and we've detected a number of offences," Sgt Findlater said.

"This is part of the reason we're repeating that operation. We appreciate that it does impact on traffic flow and we attempt to minimise those impacts but its important people see police out stopping cars and conducting these operations."

Sgt Findlater said police would be out in force over the Easter break.

"We see a large increase of traffic flow in the Easter period which increases the chances of traffic trauma so we'll be having a strong presence on the roads."
