NSW cops urging schoolies to drive safely

AAP logoAAP 21/11/2016

As NSW school leavers let their hair down for schoolies police are imploring young drivers to play it safe to make it to their destination alive.

A nearly 40 per cent rise in road deaths involving 17-25 year-old drivers from the same time last year has prompted a NSW police plea for schoolies to take care on the road and for other motorists to keep an eye on the new drivers.

NSW Police are asking P-platers to take breaks, not text, stay sober and drive within the speed limit.
