This is the fourth full day of Operation Crossroads.


As it stands this year Tasmania Police have attended no fatal accidents, however, 1 serious accident occurred yesterday.


Overall Tasmania Police are pleased with the results to date. The majority of the drivers on Tasmania’s roads have been doing the right thing and that is reflected in the crash statistics.  Although there are clear examples of those in our community who have not been respecting the road safety message it is clear that the vast majority Tasmanian’s are driving in a manner that will ensure they get home safely after their Easter break.
