Sheldon got a mention in Day two of the Queensland Easter Road Safety Campaign, but not a good mention:
More than 90 drivers were charged with drink driving while more than 4,200 drivers were detected speeding across the state.
The highest speed detected was a vehicle travelling at 143km/hour in a 80km/hour zone in Sheldon.
During the Easter period, police will enforce high risk road user behaviour including the Fatal Five: speeding, fatigue, impaired driving (drink and drug), failure to wear a seat belt and distraction and inattention in a concerted effort to minimise road trauma.
