Yeppoon drivers caught out
4pm: YEPPOON police are showing motorists they mean business after issuing 39 traffic infringement notices last week.
The notices were given as part of Operation Greenwood, targeting speeding in school zones, drink driving and driving on public beaches, from June 2 to June 4.
Of 154 random breath tests, no drink drivers were caught but 39 infringements were issued for a range of other offences including speeding, driving unaccompanied while on a learner licence, driving unregistered and uninsured vehicles and failing to display p-plates.
Two people were also arrested for possessing minor amounts of marijuana.
Senior Sergeant Max Bennett said police would continue to target speeding motorists in school zones as these drivers were putting children’s safety at risk.
“Police will also continue to target hooning on public beaches and defective vehicles,” Snr Sgt Bennett said.
