The NSW Police operation began on December 15, since then more than 25,600 speeding infringements have been issued.
“In spite of the extensive publicity regarding road safety and road policing during this time, I am mystified as to why the public would choose to continue speeding on our roads,” Traffic and Highway Patrol’s Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy said.
“The public should be particularly concerned, that in some cases speeding has been combined with alcohol.”
There have been 25 lives lost on NSW roads since Operation Safe Arrival began.
Emergency services have also been called to more than 1300 major crashes.
About 925 drink-driving charges have been issued and more than 610,500 breath tests have been conducted.
