NSW Police are reminding drivers about their responsibility to drive safely after five people lost their lives on the roads across the ANZAC Day long weekend, compared to four for the same period the previous year (2023).

The ANZAC Day traffic operation concluded on 28 April 2024, coinciding with the end of the school holidays.

During the period, police saw a number of dangerous driving incidents, including excessive speed, drink-driving, and reckless driving.

Across the state, police issued 4,197 speed infringements, conducted 165,604 breath tests with 256 people charged with drink-driving, conducted 12,371 roadside drug tests with 637 positive detections, and attended 410 major crashes, resulting in 148 people injured.

About 5pm on 25 April, officers attached to North Shore Traffic and Highway Patrol stopped a silver Honda Accord on Burns Bay Road, Linley Point.

The driver, a 44-year-old Double Bay woman, was subjected to a roadside breath test, returning a positive result.

The woman was arrested and taken to North Sydney Police Station where she was subjected to a secondary breath analysis, returning an alleged reading of 0.216. She was issued a court attendance notice for drive with high range PCA and is due to appear at Hornsby Local Court on Thursday 30 May.

Her licence was also suspended.
