Illawarra motorists have "disappointed" police, recording multiple drink driving and speeding offences so far this long weekend.
In the 48 hours following the start of Operation Slow Down at midnight on Friday morning, police recorded 49 speeding offences and 70 other traffic violations in the Lake Illawarra and Wollongong police districts.
That included a 24-year-old Albion Park man who was caught at 5.50 Friday morning driving at 150km/h in a 100km/h zone on the Princes Highway at Dunmore.
The man had his license suspended and was fined $2197.
Of similar concern for police was a 24-year-old Nowra man caught at Albion Park at 4pm on Saturday driving at 135km/h in a 90km/h zone.
The motorist, who was on his P-plates, had his license suspended immediately and was given an $815 fine.
Meanwhile, a 36-year-old Albion Park man was stopped twice within 10 minutes for speeding on Friday.
He was issued two separate infringement notices totalling close to $500 and lost 12 points due to double demerit penalties being in effect.
Police also encountered numerous motorists drink driving, and on Friday at 4pm a 42-year-old woman was involved in a crash on the Princes Highway at Albion Park Rail.
She was taken to a police station for testing and allegedly returned a result of 0.172.
The woman's license was suspended.
Motorists picked up for other traffic violations included a 48-year-old man whose license expired in June 1988, and was allegedly disqualified from obtaining a licence until May 2014.
He was caught driving an Isuzu truck on the Princes Highway, West Wollongong, about 9.10pm Saturday.
A 32-year-old man from Lethbridge Park was allegedly caught driving a stolen motorbike in Berkeley around 9.35pm on Saturday.
Police inspections revealed the man's license had been suspended until 2040, and he now faces a string of charges.
Lake Illawarra Highway Patrol Sergeant Nicholas Park said the weekend's results had been "frustrating and disappointing".
"We're appealing for the last bit of the long weekend ... [and] coming up to Christmas for people to be sensible," he said.
Sgt Park said police would continue their increased patrols until Operation Slow Down ends tonight at 11.59pm.
