Melton Mowbray traffic blitz
The Tasmania Police Road Safety Taskforce was out in force last night (Friday) for a blitz at Melton Mowbray in the Southern Midlands.
They were joined by Transport Safety Inspectors, Parks and Wildlife Service rangers and compliance officers and Tasmania Police Dog Handlers conducted random breath tests, drug tests, vehicle checks and firearms enforcement checks of motorists.
No drivers were found under the influence of alcohol, but four did have illegal drugs in their systems.
Four people are also being summonsed under the Firearms Act and 15 defects were issued.
