DRIVERS have had their licences suspended immediately after being caught speeding during Operation Bathurst.
The high-visibility police operation for the Bathurst 1000 has been running since Thursday, involving all facets of the NSW Police Force.
On the second day of the operation, there were 84 drivers detected travelling above the speed limit on roads in and around the Bathurst region.
One of them is facing legal action after being detected travelling at 46 kilometres per hour above the speed limit.
Others are facing a range of legal action including immediate licence suspensions and court attendance notices.
Traffic and Highway Patrol officers are also targeting people driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol and people not wearing seatbelts or motorcycle helmets.
On Friday, they conducted 4398 random breath tests, bringing the current tally to 8607.
Traffic and Highway Patrol Command Regional Superintendent Paul Glinn said police would continue high profile random breath testing operations across the weekend.
"We are also maintaining a high profile when it comes to those who make the choice to drive under the influence of illicit substances. Drugs and alcohol in your system mean your ability to control a vehicle properly is reduced," he said.
"People should also remember that alcohol leaves the body slowly and it is quite possible that you might still be over the limit the next day.
"Make sure you have a Plan B, which could include making sure someone else in your group is prepared to drive."
