‘Police are working closely with the City of Wanneroo, local residents and track users to identify the issues and develop a sound resolution to the problem before the commencement of summer, which heavily increases traffic flow to the small community of Two Rocks,’ Sgt Macander said.

‘Already the area draws several hundred motorists per day over the weekend and public holidays and high numbers on week days.’

Sgt Macander said the coastline offered people a beautiful location to enjoy their time off, but warned against reckless driving.

‘Police are concerned with reports of repeated incidents of reckless and drink driving and near misses involving speed,’ he said.

‘Generally the track is used by responsible motorists who appreciate the local development and funding provided by the City of Wanneroo.

‘Reckless driving will not be tolerated on bitumen or off-road and to expect an increased police presence on the track.

‘This is also a reminder to motorists using the track to comply with local signage for no standing zones at the entry/exit and show respect to the residents of the area regarding noise levels.’

The Dewars Track crosses private property, from the Sovereign and Damepattie drives intersection, giving off-road drivers access to Wilbinga and various fishing and surfing spots.
