BREAKS & THEFTS
Positive police blitz
POLICE have praised the behaviour
of local motorists, following a recent
statewide crackdown on drink- and
Police were out in force across the state
conducting random breath tests (RBT) and
random drug tests (RDT) during a 12-hour
blitz last fortnight, as part of their continued
Operation Stop campaign, targeting
dangerous driver behaviour.
Around 170 motorists were tested for drugs
and alcohol in the Barossa and Gawler, with
only two drivers returning positive alcohol
A 37-year-old Tanunda man returned a
reading of 0.154 per cent, while a Shea-Oak
Log person was detected with a blood-
alcohol level of 0.065.
Barossa highway patrol officer in charge
Paul Henderson was pleased with the results,
but said drink-drivers, and increasingly more
drug-drivers, were still contributing to road
fatalities in the region.
"It's good when we do mass testing and we
get very low detections," he said
"Low numbers are pleasing, because it
seems the message is filtering through.
"However, drink-drivers represent nearly
one-third of serious crashes, so there are
those intoxicated people still endangering
the lives of others.
"People are still out there getting away with
"We have to get that social pressure through
to drug-driving, so, hopefully, people will
say to each other 'don't drive on drugs,
either -- it's not right'."
Across the state, police conducted 4050
alcohol screening tests, with 30 drivers
returning a positive result for alcohol, along
with five positive drug results.
Thirteen vehicles were impounded during
the operation and 14 drivers received
immediate loss of licence notices.
A NUMBER of vehicles across the broader
Gawler region have recently been damaged,
while parked in the street, prompting police to
issue a warning.
One of the most serious incidents involved the
marking of graffiti on six vehicles in Gawler South
over the weekend.
In separate incidents, mirrors were stolen from a
vehicle parked in a Commercial Lane car park on
Thursday, and a vehicle windscreen was smashed
on Fifteenth Street, in Gawler South, between
Friday and Saturday.
Local police have warned motorists to avoid
parking on the street, where possible, especially
overnight or for long stays, and to also choose a
well-lit or monitored car park when they can.
Valuables should not be left in the car or in plain
A TRUCK trailer roll-over
caused delays for motorists last
Thursday, when spilled grain
covered parts of the Horrocks
Local police were called to
Horrocks Highway, just north
of the Templers turn-off, at
approximately 7.30am on
Thursday, tending to the roll-over
for approximately five hours,
whilst a grain clean-up was
Attending the roll-over was
Kapunda police officer Eddie
Dilena, who said the roll-over
was pretty straightforward.
"There were no injuries, it was
the truck's dog trailer full of grain
that went over," he said.
"It is estimated about 13 to 14
tonne of grain was spilled over
The truck's trailer rolled to the
left of the road whilst heading
southbound on Horrocks
At the scene at midday, officer
Dilena said a clean-up had been
ongoing for five hours, with the
vision of it almost completed.
"The driver is all good, with no
injuries," he said.
"And we've just had a council
street sweeper out here to clean
up the grain."
Officer Dilena said there was
no signs of damage to the road,
though other road users had to
be directed through a single lane
around the clean-up site.
The truckʼs trailer
was towed away
just after midday,
