Police sting busts 67 pedestrians

NOT even three uniformed police officers and two highly visible police highway patrol cars were enough to deter some pedestrians from breaking the law in Bankstown CBD last Wednesday.

Police were conducting Operation Compliance 3 and issued 67 infringement notices to pedestrians in the Bankstown area. Across Sydney’s south-west, a total of 161 infringement notices were issued to pedestrians.
Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander, Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy, said keeping pedestrians and motorists safe was the command’s top priority.
“We make no apologies for these operations and issuing infringements as we want to see people returning home safely; whether they be pedestrians, drivers, cyclists or passengers,” Assistant Commissioner Corboy said.
“We’re here to implore the community to heed our advice and work together to make sure there are no further casualties. We’re all in this together and we all deserve to reach our destination safely.”
So far this year, there have been 33 pedestrians that have died on NSW roads.
