"The car was impounded at the driver's expense and they were also issued an immediate seven-day licence suspension. It's just not worth it."

 

Operation Impact saw police forces looking out for the 'deadly 4' offences which includes impaired driving, distracted driving, speeding and those not using seatbelts.
