Almost 100 people have been booked for drink driving and more than 3000 have been detected speeding in the first 24 hours of the annual Christmas Queensland police road blitz.
No deaths were recorded, although 24 people were injured in 20 accidents across the state, police say.
In the 24 hours from midnight on Thursday, police conducted 11,914 breath tests and 37 drug tests on Queensland drivers.
Just one person tested positive for drugs while 95 drivers were taken off the road for driving with a blood alcohol limit above 0.05.
Police cameras detected 2318 vehicles speeding while another 854 were booked manually.
Both figures are up on last year, when during the same period 1720 motorists were booked by speed cameras and 561 manually.
Overall 900 more people were booked (3316 offences) in the first 24 hours of the annual Christmas police road blitz than for the same period last year (2408).
