Police Targeting Drivers Over Labour Day Weekend

The Labour Day weekend will see a strong police force out and about in Swan Hill, as Operation Arid has officially begun.

With the town bursting at the seams with activity, Swan Hill police will be looking to take no chances when it comes to preventing the long weekend turning into a horrible one.

Random Breath Testing and Drug Testing will be a prominent part of the operation, as police look to bust those who break the rules and endanger others.

Swan Hill Police Inspector Haydn Downes says if you plan ahead, you'll have nothing to worry about.

"We don't want to stop people having a good time, but have a good think about your plans," Downes said.

"If you're going to go out and have a good time, arrange some form of alternate transport. Get a mate who hasn't been drinking to pick you up, or get a taxi."

The operation will run through until Monday night.
