SPEEDING, drink driving and attempting to evade police, a four-day police blitz on the region's roads has nabbed many doing the wrong thing.
Operation Stay Alert ran from Friday until Monday in an effort to reduce the growing road toll on Western NSW roads.
Despite "saturation policing" on the region's roads, Western Region Traffic Tactician Inspector Ben Macfarlane said a number of drivers had been caught doing the wrong thing.
By the third day of the operation, police had already issued 159 speeding fines in Western NSW, including 19 in Chifley, followed by Orana Mid Western (18), Central North (eight), and Central West (five).
Also, 134 fines have been issued for a range of other infringements, with an additional 11 for restraint offences.
In the three days, police conducted 4134 random breath tests across Western NSW, including 744 in the Orana Mid Western region, followed by Chifley (550), Central West (286) and Central North (209).
