Police continue holiday blitz

CHRISTMAS is a time to drink and be merry - but not if you're planning to get behind the wheel.

Four drink drivers were caught by Rockhampton police on Monday night.

Central Region traffic co-ordinator Acting Inspector Steve Hall said all readings were at the lower end of the scale.

Inspector Hall also said there were no major crashes in Rockhampton over the Boxing Day holiday.

"Everyone has probably got to where they're going or maybe they're learning," he said yesterday.

"Tomorrow people will start coming back from holidays though, so we'll see some more traffic on the road."

While Rockhampton has been spared major crashes over the long weekend, other areas have not fared as well.

A single-vehicle turnover occurred yesterday afternoon on Razorback Rd between Mt Morgan and Kabra.

Authorities closed the road around 3.15pm advising motorists to use The Range Rd.

There was also an accident on the Bruce Hwy near St Lawrence around 10am yesterday, after a vehicle's tyre blew out.

A spokeswoman for the Mackay police said the vehicle hit a bridge but no one was injured.

Police have reminded motorists to drive safely and be aware of the fatal four - speeding, alcohol, fatigue and not wearing seat belts.
