"[NSW] Police are targeting inappropriate speed, alcohol and drug driving, fatigue, restraints, helmets and distraction devices," Murray River Police District's Inspector Paul Huggett explains.

Murray River Police District have expressed their concerns over the number of accidents on NSW roads.

"It's about engaging with the community as much as we can to try and make sure that everyone gets to and from their destination safely," Insp. Huggett said.

"Drive to the prevailing road conditions, take your time, plan your trips and don't rush."

Double demerits will return in NSW from Wednesday to Sunday as part of 'Operation Go Slow' across the ANZAC Day public holidays.

Victorian Police will also be running a road safety operation over this period.
