conducted over 24 hours by NSW Police on Wednesday saw 1059 motorists caught talking or texting on their mobile phones while driving.

Titled 'Operation Compliance Six', the blitz formed part of a crackdown on both speeding and mobile phone offences, with 1350 issued speeding infringements over a 24-hour period.

Of the 2409 offenders, 422 were P-platers and 94 were driving unregistered vehicles.

“The state’s road toll stands at 429 and, despite all our warnings, it would seem there are motorists out there intent on acting up behind the wheel and risk themselves becoming the next statistic,” Traffic Services Commander, Assistant Commissioner John Hartley said.

“To have 2409 people caught speeding or using their phone in a single day is an absolute disgrace,” he said.

Radar While the majority of the blitz's mobile phone infringements were issued on metropolitan Sydney roads, most of the speeding fines went to motorists in regional and rural areas.

Motorists within Botany Bay (59), Penrith (42), Surry Hills (39), Sutherland (37) and Harbourside (36) Local Area Commands recorded the most mobile phone infringements, while Monaro (115), Fairfield (92), Lake Macquarie (56), Coffs/Clarence (51) and Central Hunter (50) Local Area Commands performed worst for speeding offences.

“There is surely no phone call worth losing your life for – if your phone rings, ignore it or stop your vehicle in a safe location before picking up,” Mr Hartley said.

“It only takes a momentary lapse of concentration for things to turn deadly and you cannot be fully concentrating on what you’re doing behind the wheel of your car if you’re chatting on the phone or typing an SMS.”
