Police are reminding residents to be mindful of the fatal five and securing their property heading into the holiday season.

Sen-Sgt McConnel said too many people had lost their lives on the roads, so urged drivers to take note of the fatal five - speeding, intoxication through drugs or alcohol, fatigue, failing to wear a seatbelt and distraction.

Residents also needed to be aware of property security and locking keys away heading into the holidays, he said.

"When you're going away get someone to keep an eye on the house, make sure people clear your mailboxes," Sen-Sgt McConnel said.

"Wait until you get back to post photos on social sites."

Sen-Sgt McConnel said if other people knew where the residents lived, social media photos could show them their property was empty.
