Police targeting the five fatals during Labour weekend
Police are targeting what they are calling the five fatals during the Labour weekend break.
Speed, alcohol, safety belts, driver behaviour and manner of driving will all be a focus, as more officers patrol the roads.
Police say nationally, during Labour weekend last year, there were seven crashes and eight fatalities, with a total estimated social cost of $45 million.
All motorists caught driving at more than four kilometres an hour over the speed limit during the break will be ticketed.
In Dunedin, checkpoints will be set up, and officers will be trying to ensure a smooth flow of traffic.
