Among them was a 32 year old man who was clocked at 167 km/h on the Princes Highway Near Allansford on Friday he later returned a breath test result of .124

Acting Inspector Tania Barbary says the message needs to get through.

"It's frustrating to think that people are still not getting the message, not only are they a risk to themselves but they're a risk to everybody who's on the road," Acting Inspector Barbary said.

"The impact of any potential collision has an affect on the other road user, the person themselves, the families and the services who attend the collision and it's just not on," she said.

A 20-year-old male p-plate driver also returned a positive breath test after being intercepted north of Camperdown in the early hours of Saturday morning, blowing .123.

Then on Sunday at 2pm a 39-year-old male was pulled over by Camperdown police at Lake Bolac, retuning a result of .137.

All drivers will have their vehicles impounded and have received summons for court at a later date.
