Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander, Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy said with the festive season fast approaching they will keep pushing the safe driving messages out to the community to ensure "every motorist thinks about their actions" before they get behind the wheel.
It comes as police released the results of Operation Drink Drive II - a 72-hour operation conducted by NSW Police over the weekend targeting alcohol-impaired motorists across the state.
The operation, which ended on Sunday night, saw police conduct 192,535 random breath tests and charge 324 people with drink driving. One person was killed in southern NSW.
As part of the operation, a 25-year-old Greenfield Park man was detected travelling in a white Toyota Hilux at an alleged speed of 136km/h in a signposted 70km/h zone on Cowpasture Road, Bossley Park on Saturday at 1am.
Officers from Liverpool Highway Patrol stopped the vehicle in a car park on Restwell Road, Bossley Park and the driver was issued with an infringement notice for exceeding the speed limit by more than 45km/h which carries a $2482 fine with six points. His licence was suspended for six months.
"During the operation police detected 204 people using their mobile phones, issued 2568 speeding infringements and 469 people were issued fines for not wearing a seatbelt," Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy said.
"We will continue to target drink driving across the state so if you chose to take the risk you will be caught."
