UPDATE: NewsMail reporter stopped in RBT blitz

Update 12pm: 

BUNDABERG Police are out in force this morning with a large scale RBT in operation.

The blitz comes after a number of fatal accidents in the Bundaberg region in recent weeks.

NewwsMail reporter Geordi Offord is among the hundreds who have been pulled over and breathalysed.

"Thankfully, I decided not to celebrate too hard after Queensland's win over New South Wales in last night's State of Origin," she said.

"Having said that I wouldn't be behind the wheel if I had celebrated."  

Seeing the large number of drivers participating and after chatting to Constable Clint Karas, it's obvious local officers are committed to doing everything they can to prevent more people losing their lives on our roads.

"Pay attention, put your phones down and focus on the road so you can get to your destination safely," he said.  

The NewsMail has decided on this occasion not to reveal the location of the current RBT site so people don't avoid it.

Initial: 

BUNDABERG Police are undertaking a large traffic operation today in a bid to curb drivers doing the wrong thing on our roads.

It comes in the wake of a number of fatal crashes in the area.

Police have expressed their frustrations at drivers continuing to do the wrong thing despite these fatalities.

The NewsMail understands one of the regions busiest roads will be the focus of an RBT blitz.

If you're on the road be sure to stick to the rules.
