Drivers across the South Coast are being warned we could be hit with double demerit points over the long weekend as police crack down on reckless behaviour.

A widespread road safety operation has begun and will continue until midnight on Monday.

Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy says the "vast majority" of road crashes are avoidable and are a result of irresponsible driving behaviour such as drink and drug driving, distraction and fatigue.
