Stay safe during Easter: police

REMEMBER the fatal four this Easter break and stay safe.

This is the Easter message from Emerald acting officer-in-charge sergeant Chris Clague for this long weekend.

With police expecting more motorists on the road during the school holidays and especially over the weekend, Sgt Clague reminded motorists to buckle up, remain sober and alert, and drive at the speed limit. A major cause of accidents on Central Highlands roads, Sgt Clague said, was driver inattention and one way to combat that problem was to include plenty of rest breaks.

"Don't drive tired and when travelling great distances, share the driving responsibilities," he said.

Though staying safe on the road was of utmost importance, Sgt Clague also reminded residents their belongings at home also need to remain safe this Easter.

"Secure your property because the majority of theft offences are committed because the opportunity is there," he said.
