Easter safety blitz – Operation Thalen

Police

The Easter break is fast approaching and many Territorians will be hitting the road, going camping, fishing and enjoying all the good things the onset of the Dry Season brings.

Northern Territory Police want everyone to have a great time, but to also get home safely.

Police will be operating a Territory-wide road safety campaign 1-5 April, targeting drink driving, vehicle registration and roadworthiness.

Acting Senior Sergeant Craig Gillis said, “The Easter weekend is traditionally a very busy one on our roads, and police will be out and about. We will be conducting random breath and drug tests; we will be looking out for unregistered and unroadworthy vehicles.

“Before heading out for the break, we ask that everyone checks their trailers, campers, caravans and vehicles are registered and roadworthy. Addressing any mechanical or safety issues now could very well save lives.”
