Safety message not sinking in to Gladstone motorists

IT APPEARS that some drivers fail to understand the word "safety" as one drink-driver recorded a breath-alcohol level of 0.327 per cent at Kin Kora.

The highest speed recorded on day eight of the Christmas Road Safety Campaign was 165km/h in a 100km zone on the Pacific Mwy at Worongary.

A driver on the Robina Pwy at Robina was also detected at 80km over the speed limit (150km in a 70km zone).

Police also impounded 36 vehicles across the state.

Excessive speeds in 60km zones were detected with a driver on Gympie Rd, Kedron travelling at 108km/h, a Toowoomba driver at 119km/h and a Cairns driver at 107km/h.
