DRIVERS have clocked up more than 6000 offences on Queensland roads in the past fortnight.

Most of the bad driving behaviour committed during the state-wide drive campaign Q-Blitz was for speeding, including 4060 speed camera offences.

Fifty-nine drivers have been caught drink driving and 30 under the influence of drugs since the campaign started on November 1.

Police Commissioner Ian Stewart was disappointed by the high number of motorists who continued to risk the lives of others around them.

"We are trying to send a message to drivers ahead of the busy Christmas period that ignoring the fatal four factors can not only endanger your life, but the lives of passengers and other road users," Commissioner Stewart said.

He said that 248 lives had already been lost this year, 17 more than the same time last year.
