Geraldton police will use speed cameras, set up random breath testing units and increase patrols tomorrow in a bid to penalise motorists behaving badly.

The operation will be confined to the suburb of Geraldton and start at 7am through to midnight.

Unsafe road-user behaviours targeted include speeding, drink-driving, drug impairment, phone use and failure to wear restraints.

Police say the operation is a local commitment aimed at addressing WA road fatalities. According to the Road Safety Commission, approximately a quarter of the 161 people killed in crashes on WA roads last year were in alcohol-related crashes.

About a third of the total people killed were in speed-related crashes.

Police advise motorists to drive to the conditions, plan breaks during long drives and obey road rules.
