Murrumbidgee Police District officers have worked to ensure safety on the area's roads as part of Operation Safe Arrival.
The operation, which ran across the state from December 20 until New Year's Day, saw 7,695 random breath tests administered across the region, with 5 charges for drink driving and 266 speeding fines issued.
Murrumbidgee Police District Acting Inspector Chris Fuchs said the overall behaviour of drivers in the region was good over the festive season.
"There were zero fatalities," Acting Inspector Fuchs said.
"However, the number of people caught speeding and driving drug affected was concerning."
Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy said there has been a reduction in drink driving and speeding charges from last year's operation.
"Drivers have been made aware that if you plan on getting behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it's highly likely you'll encounter one of our officers," he said.
As part of the operation, a 63-year-old woman was charged with a mid-range drink driving charge in Leeton on New Year's Day after being stopped for a random breath test at 1.20pm.
Officers inspected the woman's vehicle after administering the test to find three children under the age of five travelling in the vehicle.
The woman had her licence suspended and was granted conditional bail, with the woman due to front Leeton Local Court on February 11.
The operation saw 525,337 breath tests administered across the state, with 721 drink driving charges and 11,722 speeding fines issued.
