Police urge road users to stay safe on the roads over Christmas
Victoria Police is urging every road user to take responsibility for their own safety as it launches Operation Roadwise ahead of an anticipated busy holiday period on Victorian roads.
The operation will see police maintain a highly visible presence to try and prevent dangerous behaviour and encourage people to observe the basics of road safety to prevent tragic outcomes.
Using an intelligence-based approach, police will target busy periods, locations and major arterials where law-breaking drivers are expected to be.
As people head into festive season celebrations, officers will be working hard to ensure that impaired drivers do not put themselves or others at risk, with every single police vehicle able to conduct preliminary breath tests.
