Easter operation targeting dangerous driver behaviour
Victoria Police's Operation Nexus will run from 12.01am today until 11.59pm Monday 5 April.
Police will be targeting speed, drink and drug driving and mobile phone use.
With large numbers of people travelling long distances or on unfamiliar roads to get to holiday destinations, police will also be targeting fatigue, asking drivers to plan their trip and rest regularly when on Victoria’s busy roads.
Swan Hill Leading Senior Constable Tania Peters says people are already getting away.
"I've noticed myself that there's an increased number of vehicles including campers, caravans and the like," says Peters.
"So people are obviously out and about and going to take advantage of this wonderful weather we're going to have over the weekend."
