Traffic and Highway Patrol Command’s Assistant Commissioner John Hartley said he was mystified by the behavior in light of the run of road tragedies.

“If you think of some of the behaviour detected on our roads across the weekend, the number of fatalities could, quite easily, have increased,” he said.

“Each time we drive, we have choices to make in terms of how fast that vehicle is travelling, whether you are under the influence of alcohol or have used drugs when you take control of the vehicle and ensuring all of your passengers are properly restrained.

The 2016 NSW road toll stands at 152 –34 more than this time last year.

“This is a chilling statistic when you consider the family, friends and colleagues of the 152 people as their lives have been changed forever by one choice made by a road user,” Assistant Commissioner John Hartley said.
