With all roads leading to Melbourne for the big AFL elimination final on Saturday, SA Police will be out in force along the Dukes Highway to make sure that everyone arrives safely.
Today Inspector Steve Kameniar, officer in charge Traffic Investigations, while wishing the Adelaide Crows every success on their journey towards the grand final reinforced the road safety message for fans planning to drive to Melbourne.
“The important thing is to arrive safely,” he said. “Don’t drive fatigued. Don’t speed and don’t drink and drive.”
He reminded motorists to, plan their journey, plan to have rest breaks, allow enough time so there is no need to speed and most importantly plan to arrive safely.
“There will be a lot of traffic on the road so your journey will take a little longer, be patient, concentrate on your driving and above all don’t take risks.”
“For those that choose not to do the right thing and want to push the boundaries, there will be additional police on the road between Adelaide and Melbourne.
“You can expect to see speed cameras and police bikes in addition to local police resources. The main focus of the police operation will be speed, driver fatigue and drink and drug driving.”
