Police Do Not Conduct Road Blocks To Enforce Elevated Safe Distancing Measures

There are messages circulating via text messaging services making false claims that members of the public had been stopped at police road blocks and fined for not complying with the elevated safe distancing measures. This is not true. The Police have not conducted road blocks specifically to enforce the elevated safe distancing measures, and no passengers have been fined at road blocks for not complying with these measures.   

The Police conduct road blocks to detect offences such as for drink-driving, and other law enforcement purposes, such as to detect wanted persons. Nevertheless, if the Police come across motorists and passengers flouting the elevated safe distancing measures when conducting such road blocks, the Police may take enforcement action.
