A POLICE blitz on Shoalhaven roads last week resulted in a number of charges laid.
Six members of the NSW Traffic and Highway Patrol Command, three in cars and three on motorcycles were in the region targeting motoring offences.
From September 12 to 16 they conducted 752 random breath tests.
Over the five days police issued 66 traffic infringements, 29 speeding fines, three fines for driving while unlicensed, and issued 10 defect notices.
Inspector Phil Brooks from the Traffic and Highway Patrol Command said operations like the one in the Shoalhaven can be done anytime, anywhere in NSW.
“They are conducted for the benefit of keeping all road users safe,” he said.
During the blitz an unlicensed 57-year-old Sussex Inlet man was arrested and charged with driving unlicensed and drink driving.
A 64 year-old Nowra man was charged with high range drink driving after returning a blood alcohol level of .176.
A P-plate driver from Culburra Beach was charged with special range drink driving after he returned a blood alcohol level of .31.
