Po­lice nab five driv­ers

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

FIVE mo­torists across Cam­paspe tested pos­i­tive for al­co­hol or drugs over the Aus­tralia Day long week­end.

Po­lice car­ried out 213 ran­dom breath tests over the four days as part of Op­er­a­tion Amity, which also de­tected 21 traf­fic of­fences.

Sergeant Paul Ni­coll of Cam­paspe High­way Pa­trol said al­though there were no se­ri­ous or fa­tal col­li­sions in Cam­paspe Shire, one of its high­way vans at­tended a col­li­sion in­volv­ing a car and mo­tor­bike in El­more about 10am on Jan­uary 27.

A male mo­tor­cylist from Gir­garre was flown to the Al­fred Hos­pi­tal with non-life threat­en­ing in­juries.

The cause is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

‘‘Oth­er­wise the traf­fic was busy but be­cause it was so hot, ev­ery­one just took their time and was very well be­haved,’’ Sgt Ni­coll said.
