Over 80 driving infringements issues in Orange over the weekend

A high number of motorists in Orange were charged for driving offences over the weekend, as police enforced Operation Go Slow.

40 motorists were caught speeding, two were not wearing a seatbelt, and one driver was found to have a mid-range blood alcohol level.

Another 44 infringement notices were issued for other driving related offences.

New South Wales Police Traffic and Highway Patrol Sergeant Luke Blisset says an unusual number of daily offences were recorded during the operation, which begun on midnight Wednesday and finished at midnight last night.

Police are advising all motorists to stick to the speed limit, take regular rest breaks, and ensure all passengers are wearing their seatbelts at all time.
