DRINK-driving is decreasing but speeding is as popular as ever, according to figures released by police on the last day of Operation Crossroads.
Inspector Shane LeFevre said 113 people had been charged with drink- driving in Tasmania this holiday season, with one day left to go in the operation.
That's 35 fewer than the 148 charged the year before, despite police conducting 2000 more random breath tests.
The 12-day national road safety blitz finished at midnight last night.
Inspector LeFevre said he was disappointed the number of speeding drivers had not also reduced - the 1015 speeding tickets issued by yesterday morning was on par with the year before.
Among those caught speeding were three drivers travelling at more than 130km/h on the Midland Highway and a motorist travelling at 95km/h in a 60km/h zone at Lebrina, which Inspector LeFevre said was "just crazy".
"We have had those three common factors - speeding, drugs and alcohol - in this operation, which shows that our work is never ever done," he said.
He said police would not scale back their presence on the road just because the operation had ended.
