With the Sea Cliff Bridge resembling a drag strip, police are warning us to stay safe on the roads this holiday long weekend.
Just weeks after two teenagers narrowly escaped death when their ute plunged through the railing and down the cliff on the Clifton end of the bridge, it appears the scene has become popular for burnouts, risking the lives of other drivers using the bridge.
At the time of writing, Police have issued 16,332 speeding infringement notices across NSW over the holiday period, which they say highlights the fact too many drivers are engaging in risky behaviour on our roads, even with Double Demerit points in force until midnight on Monday.
Acting Commissioner Michael Corboy says with 2016 drawing to a close, we should make it a resolution to be safer drivers in the coming year. “Irresponsible behaviour is taking too many lives,” he says. “My officers will be out there to try and get all road users to see in 2017 safely.”
