Police in the Southern Region are launching Operation Chrome this weekend, in order to reduce road trauma and save lives on rural roads.

The first phase of Operation Chrome will run from tomorrow (Friday 27 April 2018) until Sunday (29 April 2018).

The operation will utilise police from all Police Districts within the Southern region, working alongside officers from the Traffic & Highway Patrol Command.

Police will be targeting poor driver behaviours that are costing lives on rural roads including speeding, drink and drug-driving, not wearing seatbelts, using a mobile phone while driving and fatigue.

Drivers and riders should expect to see more police on rural roads and highways in the southern region over the coming days.

Assistant Commissioner Peter Barrie, Commander of the Southern Region, said reducing rural road trauma is a priority for the entire southern region.

“During Operation Chrome, it will not only be officers from the Traffic & Highway Patrol that will be tasked with keeping everyone safe on our roads.

“If you are on our roads and doing something wrong you can expect to be stopped by detectives in an unmarked car, general duties police, or one of our highway patrol officers.

“Our primary aim is to stop fatal crashes before they happen. To do that, we make no apologies for enforcing the road rules that are the biggest contributors to fatal crashes.

“Road safety is everyone’s responsibility. If every driver or rider takes personal responsibility for their actions, it will save lives. It’s that simple,” Assistant Commissioner Barrie said.

Superintendent Bob Ryan, Regional Command of the Traffic & Highway Patrol said,

“Sadly, we have already lost 118 lives on NSW roads this year. More than two-thirds of those lives lost are in regional areas.

“The biggest tragedy is that most of the lives we have already lost were because of a poor decision by someone behind the wheel.

“We make no apologies for taking licences away from anyone who puts themselves and other road users at risk through dangerous driving behaviours,” Superintendent Ryan said.

Police have released CCTV footage and are reappealing for public assistance as investigations continue into the death of a man at Clovelly last week.

About 11pm on Saturday 14 April 2018, emergency services were called to Fern Street after 62-year old, Colin Scott, was found unconscious on the footpath.

Mr Scott was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital and treated for severe facial injuries and brain damage. He died on Tuesday 17 April 2018.

Detectives from Eastern Beaches Police Area Command have been investigating Mr Scott’s death.

Investigators have now released CCTV footage and are appealing for public assistance, urging anyone who might have seen Mr Scott or can identify persons in the vision, who detectives believe may be able to assist with their inquiries, to come forward.

Mr Scott, a local resident, was last seen leaving a 353 bus from Bondi Junction on the eastern side of Fern Street about 10.45pm.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, of a large build, about 180cm tall, and grey hair.

He is shown wearing a navy check shirt, black pants, a navy cap, and carrying a black duffle bag.

Detectives are keen to speak with anyone who was in the area at that time or has information about events leading up to Mr Scott being found injured, to contact detectives as they may have information that can assist.

Inquiries are continuing and police are awaiting the result of a post mortem examination to determine the cause of death.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/ Information you provide will be treated in the strictest of confidence. We remind people they should not report crime information via our social media pages.

Lets always remember the ultimate sacrifices these young men gave so we could have the lifestyle we enjoy now! LEST WE FORGET.

Remembering all the young men who went to war and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to give us the freedom we enjoy today. Lest we forget 🌹

I ądmire and love all those young brave men and all the soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live our lives in peace. Shame on anyone or organization like local councils who forbids their workers to wear a poppy or any symbol that represents Anzacs in fear of offending immigrants from war torn country. We are period Australians and dearly love our Anzacs.

Amen & forever remembered for there fearless gallantry in fighting for this Country!

Beautifully said. Thankyou to all those who are in the services keeping our country safe and to those and their families who have lost their lives for our country. God bless you all

We salute and thankyou for fighting for our country and our freedom..we will remember......

My Dad would have been 102 this month but lost his life at 26 when executed by the Japanese, so many beautiful young men gave their all for us I will be forever grateful.

This is why you should NEVER change Anzac day LEST WE FORGET

And we Thank Them every year and They will not be Forgotten 🌹

Lest We Forget not just today but always. Shame on those that come from different countries not to respect this day so thankful to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice & those in the forces now a big Thank You 🇻🇬🇻🇬🇻🇬🇻🇬🇰🇭

Remembering my uncles, father-in-law, step- f-i-l and all who did their part back home for the war effort. We should never take what they did for granted.

Thank you for the life you gave us Rest In Peace.

Very true we owe our soldiers so much,Thank You

Beautifully said 💔🌙✨🌏🇦🇺

"At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them. Lest We Forget."

Great fighting forces we have,R,I,P, for those who didn,t make it back home.Lest we Forget.

THATS A FACT! So dont waste today !

They will always be remembered for their bravery and sacrifices. lest we forget

Thank you to all those young men who gave us freedom to do as we please... not be dictated to by an ancient culture... do we truly appreciate freedom to be our true self?

We salute everyone of you brave soldiers,

My grandfathers brother is on this wall.his name is ken mcleod who was only 17 when he went 2 war .he was at war 3days when he died

Yes, 'paying your respects' by using the day as an opportunity to raise revenue with your sneaky as Parking Inspectors. We attended the Evening Service at 5pm at the Cenotaph at which time the City was largely empty, thought we had parked legally (it's impossible to interpret the multiple signs sitting one above the other each with it's own set of rules) and copped a $220 fine. Our car was parked for the duration of the half hour service and approximately 10 minutes either side, so say 50 minutes all up. What a disgrace you are on our National Day of Remembrance. Hitting families who are paying their respects where it hurts the most.

I can't wait for that massive water fountain to be completed. I just wish they allowed more pedestrian space in front of it for disabled people and those who are waiting for busses. Also for pedestrians walking by. I am saying this because I think that the commuters are just as important as the nice fountain. Just a little oversight by council that can always get fixed later...I think.

My take on the remembrance of those brave soldiers during today's Anzac March in Sydney #wewillrememberthem #lestweforget
