Road blitz returns

Police have urged motorists to slow down over this holiday period.

The Easter weekend just gone is followed by the Anzac Day long weekend, beginning this Friday.

Operation Go Slow targets motorists from Thursday to Sunday.

Double demerits apply for speeding, not wearing seatbelts or motorcycle helmets and other traffic offences.

NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said last year's total number of road deaths, 339, was a record low.

"But we can never lose sight of the fact that so far this year 107 people have been killed on our roads," he said.

"We are still detecting speeding, drink-driving and distracted motorists on a daily basis."
