Police have warned there will be heavy traffic on Easter Monday, April 22 after holiday makers return from the South Coast.
They advised to allow extra travel time on the Kings Highway and Princes Highway.
The police said across NSW there had been "a concerning number" of drivers exceeding the speed limit, with some involved in pursuits across NSW roads.
Another fatality was recorded on Saturday, April 20 in northern NSW, totaling three for the operation so far.
Operation Tortoise, the state's Easter long-weekend road safety operation, began at 12.01am on Thursday 18 April 2019 and would run until 11.59am on Monday 22 April 2019.
Police across NSW would continue targeting all speeding, mobile phone, seatbelt and motorcycle-helmet offences, which would attract double demerit points as the long weekend continues.
So far since April 18, police said there were 6,554 total non-speeding infringements issued, 869 fewer than last year.
There were 4,063 speed infringements issued, 881 fewer than last year.
There were 196,092 breath tests, 23,216 more than 2018.
There were 95 drink-driving charges, 186 fewer than 2018.
There were three lives lost, two more than 2018.
Traffic and highway patrol commander, Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy, said while there was a positive change in this year's figures, there were still many who act irresponsibly on the road.
"It's encouraging that police have handed out significantly fewer infringements and charges than last year's operation, and I think the common sense shown by the vast majority of road users, and good road management by officers from the Traffic & Highway Patrol Command has contributed greatly," he said.
"The consequences of stopping when directed and facing police are often far less severe than attempting to evade our officers. Driving irresponsibly and fleeing from police will only endanger the lives of the public, our officers, and yourself.
"It's also positive to see proactive work by our police on the road has seen prohibited drugs intercepted and prevented from hitting the street."
