"Heavy traffic may also be experienced at on the F3 freeway, also on the Pacific Highway at Hexham, Macksville and Coffs Harbour to Woolgoolga."

People hitting the highway on the way to their summer holiday destination also need to be mindful that double demerit points apply until Tuesday January 1 and officers will be out in force.
