School zones are now in force again

POLICE are reminding drivers school zones are now active from 8am to 9.30am and 2.30pm to 4pm.

They also said they were disappointed with the results of the summer holiday road blitz Operation Arrive Alive.

Across the state, 39 people lost their lives during the 40-day operation.

Traffic and Highway Patrol Command's Acting Assistant Commissioner Stuart Smith said while the road toll this month is lower by 12 than the same time last year, 2016 has seen some horrific crashes and excessive numbers of speeding and drink driving.

The operation began on December 18 and finished at midnight on Tuesday.
