NSW Police data reveals that one person died and eight people were injured on roads in the southern region, during the Anzac Day operation period.
The operation commenced on April 22 at 12.01am and finished on April 25 at 11.59pm across NSW, with double demerits imposed for speeding, mobile phone, seatbelt, and motorcycle helmet offences.
The four D's, which are drinking, drug use, dangerous and distracted driving, were also a priority for police and the Traffic and Highway Patrol Command.
Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander Assistant Commissioner Brett McFadden said police would continue these operations to keep the community safe, and target dangerous and irresponsible driving behaviour.
"During what has been a busy period on our roads with school holidays, Easter and the Anzac long weekend, unfortunately police are still seeing risky driving behaviour," he said.
"Those individuals who thought they could drink and drive without being caught have learnt the hard way this weekend.
"This is a timely reminder to have a plan B to make sure you return home safely."
The fatality was one of four across NSW during this period.
Twenty-five major crashes were reported in the southern region and 33 prescribed concentration of alcohol (PCA) charges were issued.
A total of 1544 infringements were issued in the operation, with 25 issued for restraint, 761 for speeding and 22 for mobile phone usage.
Overall, 19,560 breath tests were also conducted in the region from 144,477 across NSW.
