Police are urging members of the community to drive sensible and responsible as we move forward.
Road conditions can change due to a variety of factors from weather, animals, the environment, traffic, and roadworks so it’s important to drive to the prevailing conditions. Recently Logan has received a large volume of rain resulting in large potholes along the roadways.
Not driving to the conditions can have serious consequences for all road users, so pay attention to what’s happening on the roads, slow down and put road safety first, every trip, every time.
Officers from Logan Village Yarrabilba Police station will continue to be committed to road safety conducting roadside drug and alcohol testing, detecting speed related offences, observing and targeting drivers using mobile phones, identifying and intervening to prevent fatigue related offences and ensuring drivers are wearing their seat belts.
In the past month, the police from Logan Village Yarrabilba Police Station have detected seven drink drivers in the Logan Village and Yarrabilba area. This includes a man from Kooralbyn and a man from Jimboomba, both were detected drink driving over the high range limit of BAC 0.150 (three times the legal limit). These drivers were charged and required to appear before the Beaudesert Magistrates court.
These results are very concerning, especially when drivers are carrying other passengers in the vehicles. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drug can significantly reduce your ability to maintain safe control of your vehicle and puts other road users at risk.
Police stress the importance of organising a designated driver or finding alternate transport. Don’t try to guess your limit. If you’ve had anything to drink, don’t drive.
Traffic Enforcement- Any time, Any Where
Community – Domestic and Family Violence
The month of May marked Domestic Violence and Family Prevention month, Officers from across the QPS and Logan District continue to spread the important message with Queensland communities ‘Not Now. Not Ever. Together’, to stop domestic and family violence across the state.
We are urging everyone to recognise the signs of domestic violence, to reach out and speak up.
Sadly, police officers across Queensland continue to respond to situations involving domestic violence on a daily basis.
As we continue to work together, we ask that all persons in our community don’t be violent and don’t be silent.
The QPS can connect people experiencing domestic violence with specialist support and services through our referral programs.
DV Connect is a fantastic service which supports our Queensland community. They provide emergency transport and accommodation as well as crisis counselling and safety planning to help Queensland women, men, children and pets find pathways to safety, away from domestic, family and sexual violence.
They can be contacted 24/7 and are continuing to operate as per usual.
