NSW Police Western Region Commander Assistant Commissioner Geoff McKechnie said a reduction in rural road trauma was a top priority for officers in the entire region. "If you are on the road and doing something wrong, you can expect to be stopped by police in an unmarked car, [by] general duties police, or one of our highway patrol officers," he said. "Our main aim is to stop fatal crashes before they happen. "Road safety is everyone's responsibility. If everyone takes personal responsibility for their actions, it will save lives. It's that simple."

"Sadly, we have already lost 33 lives on Western NSW roads this year. Most crashes happen in rural and regional areas, which is why you will see us in numbers this weekend," he said. "We make no apologies for taking licences away from anyone who puts themselves and other road users at risk through dangerous driving behaviours."
