Horsham Police asked drivers to be patient while on the roads this Labour Day long weekend.
Acting Inspector Leigh Creasey said there would be more people on the district roads with events such as the Horsham Fishing Competition and the Rainbow Desert Enduro and Rainbow Rises 240.
"We'll be targeting speed, drink driving and fatigue," Insp Creasey said.
"Fatigue is a hard one to target."

Insp Creasey said large crowds from outside residents would be drawn for the events across the division.
"There will be more traffic on the road going to those locations," he said.
"Highway patrol will be out on the highways and there will be members from Horsham Police patrolling the events."
Insp Creasey said the most significant thing he can ask from people is to be patient.
"Impatience is sometimes the reasons we get some of those head-on collisions. People don't wait and make a mistake being fatigued and impatience and want to get somewhere real quick,' he said.
"You don't need to. Just slow down and get there alive.
"You are better off getting alive than not get there at all. If you are going to be 10 minutes late, then be 10 minutes late."
Lives lost: 39 (as of March 4), down from 43 in 2020.
