MOUNT Isa remains fatality free so far these school holidays, keeping in line with last year’s figures.
District Crime Prevention Co-ordinator Cath Purcell said fatalities for the period of December 2013 to January 2014 were zero and Mount Isa police hoped for the same result this year.
“Christmas fatalities for the period of December 2013 to the end of January 2014 resulted in zero deaths,” she said.
“In the Mount Isa District there have been four crashes so far for the calendar year of 2014 resulting in five fatalities.
“In 2013 there were seven crashes and seven fatalities.
“Two of those fatalities were on private properties, one was from a quad bike accident and the other was a trail bike.
“Five deaths occurred on Queensland roads.”
Fatalities that occur on private property are not included in Queensland’s road deaths tolls.
Acting Inspector Graham Boyd commended police officers and the Mount Isa District for remaining fatality free so far these holidays.
“Due to a visible police presence, favourable weather conditions and a responsible attitude from the driving public, Mount Isa District remains fatality free for this Christmas period,” he said.
“On behalf of the Mount Isa Police District I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable journey over the holiday period.”
