Heavy on pedal at Christmas
LEAD-FOOT motorists in Rockhampton still haven't learnt that speeding isn't cool.
Up until Christmas lunchtime, more than 100 motorists were issued speeding tickets in Rockhampton.
Central Region traffic co-ordinator acting Inspector Steve Hall told the Morning Bulletin at 10am yesterday that a further 47 speeding tickets had been issued in the previous 24-hour period.
He said the tickets were for a range of speeding, with nothing of significance to report, apart from a couple of incidents of speeds 30-40kmh over the speed limits.
Insp Hall said there were none of the big ones - more than 40kmh over the speed limit.
He said police did intercept a couple of drink drivers at a random breath test site in Frenchville on Christmas Day.
Insp Hall said the highest RBT recording for Christmas Day was .130 from a 28-year-old man intercepted by police in Rockhampton a few minutes into Christmas Day.
