We are out there every day targeting main roads and back roads, and we will continue to be out there targeting drivers engaging in risky behaviour.Inspector Justin Cornes
Inspector Justin Cornes said it was a warning to anyone who attempted to drink and drive, that police were out there.
"It's a reminder that any amount of alcohol in the system impairs your judgement and ability to drive to the conditions," Inspector Cornes said.
"With the water on the road you need to allow extra distance with other vehicles in front.
"We are out there every day targeting main roads and back roads, and we will continue to be out there targeting drivers engaging in risky behaviour."
He wished to remind drivers that this weekend, there will be double demerit points in place as police conduct Operation Safe Arrival over the Australia Day weekend.
