DANGEROUS, drunk and drug-affected drivers will be targeted this long weekend.
As part of Operation Arid, police across Campaspe Shire will be making sure motorists are staying safe on our roads.
The four-day statewide road policing operation will target people who speed, use their phones, drive without seatbelts, drink or drug drive or who are fatigued.
Sergeant Paul Nicoll of Campaspe Highway Patrol urged drivers to reduce their risks on the road and follow the road rules.
‘‘We know people may go away over the long weekend, so there is likely to be more traffic on the roads,’’ he said.
‘‘Be patient, slow down and drive to the conditions.’’
