Police are reminding all travellers, commuters and road users that travel times will increase this week with the influx of traffic using the States roadways. There will be heightened enforcement activity around highways and school zones.
The Tasmanian Government will soon move to a new telephony system. Whilst departmental phone numbers will alter, importantly the emergency contact Triple Zero and Police Assistance Line 131 444 will not change.
The Police Assistance Line (131 444) is a national number for people to contact police for non-emergencies. For example, call 131 444 to report irresponsible driving or a noisy party. 131 444 calls are charged at a local rate (except for mobiles).
