From the Gympie Times

GYMPIE drivers can boast a clean drink-driving record so far since the state-wide road safety blitz began on April 2.

In the first two days, Gympie police officers conducted more than 170 random breath tests with not one positive reading among them.

A fantastic result and one The Gympie Times believes can be upheld until the end of April – at least.

The challenge is on for nil drink drivers in the region for the entire operation, which ends on April 30.

With increased traffic on the roads for the holidays, police are urging motorists now more than ever to drive safely and be patient.

Operation Q-Blitz 2 has every available officer from traffic and general duties on patrol, and with the help of mobile integrated network data access computers, is cracking down on the fatal five in an effort to minimise road trauma during this month.

In the Gympie region, about 20 fines have been issued for traffic infringements so far.
