Police saturate roads to cut toll

NEW South Wales Police will be out in force in an operation on major highways and suburban roads in an effort to combat the rising road toll.

Operation Saturation - funded by the NSW Centre for Road Safety - will include the entire Traffic and Highway Patrol fleet, assisted by local police, in high-visibility patrols.

The operation starts today and runs until Wednesday, February 18.

Police will "saturate the state" as well as focus on the top 10 areas that have recorded the highest number of fatal crashes in 2014 and 2015 to date.

These include local area commands in Shoalhaven, Goulburn, Griffith, Richmond, Coffs/Clarence, Mid North Coast, Cootamundra, Lake Macquarie, Tuggerah Lakes and Tweed/Byron.

To date this year there have been 250 fatal/injury crashes recorded in the northern region.
