Rain causes mayhem on our roads

POLICE grew increasingly frustrated as the morning wore on yesterday when a series of accidents caused mayhem on the Coffs Coast.

Highway patrol police complained many motorists were not concentrating and were not driving to the conditions as the rain continued to bucket down yesterday.

A six-car pile-up at Moonee Beach and another minutes later involving a four-wheel-drive and a truck at Emerald Beach kept emergency services flat out.

Police were subsequently called to minor accidents at Dirty Creek Range north of Corindi and at Bonville.

Motorists are urged to take it easy and to remember the Anzac Day long weekend road blitz, Operation Go Slow, starts at midnight tomorrow and runs until midnight on Monday.

Speeding, drink/drug driving, fatigue and seatbelt offences will be in police sights. Double demerit points will be in force for all major traffic offences.
