Drivers warned to keep distance

TWEED police are warning motorists to maintain a safe distance between cars, especially on the Pacific Highway, following a spate of rear-end smashes.

Thousands of dollars damage was incurred in several vehicles in smashes along the highway on Saturday.

In the first a sports sedan struck the rear end of a Holden Commodore wagon as both headed south near the Cabarita Beach, Clothiers Creek Road turnoff around 2 pm.

About the same time a north bound sedan on the opposite side of the highway left the road and became stuck down an embankment.

At about 6 pm at Chinderah another car hit the vehicle in front when the lead vehicle braked suddenly causing substantial damage to both.

No one was badly hurt in any of the incidents.
