Police Operation To See Extra Units On Our Roads This Weekend

Victoria Police is preparing to launch Operation Regal which focuses on road behaviour over the annual Queens Birthday long weekend.

Acting Senior Sergeant Fletch Pearson from Colac Police says while we may not see the usual traffic, slowing down and driving to the conditions remains key.

"We'll be focusing on key factors such as speed, alcohol, driving fatigue and driver distraction," Senior Sergeant Pearson said.

'We've got extra units out and about dedicated purely for this, if you're getting pulled over there'll be extra breath tests being conducted," he said.

"When we look at it we've had 93 lives lost this year on the roads in Victoria, 50 percent of those fatalities have occurred on roads in the country."

"And further a third of those have been attributed to excessive speed so we're going to be out there really ramping up our patrols."
