Woman loses 28 points in one incident

An Umina woman has lost 28 demerit points in one incident after her car was stopped at Ourimbah as a part of Operation Tortoise.

Highway patrol officers stopped the woman in the northbound lanes of the M1 Pacific Hwy just after 5pm on Monday, April 22.

Police spoke to the 24-year-old Umina woman about using a mobile phone while she was driving.

Police discovered that the seats of three children; aged five, three and one; were not properly restrained as their shoulder straps were not tightened correctly.

None were anchored to the vehicle as required.

The woman was issued four infringements, three notices for the children not being restrained as prescribed and the fourth for use of the mobile phone when not permitted.

These carried a combined penalty of $1348 and due to double demerit points the driver accrued 28 demerit points.

Children at risk notifications have been made to Family and Community Services.

Operation Tortoise, the state's Easter long-weekend road safety operation, started at 12:01am on Thursday, April 18, and finished at 11:59pm on Monday, April 22.

Traffic and Highway Patrol commander Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy said the Easter enforcement campaign had been highlighted by a number of poor choices being made by drivers.

"Even though there have been declines in the number of people detected drink driving and travelling above the speed limit, we are still hearing of examples such as the one from Ourimbah," Assistant Commissioner Corboy said.
