Road safety is number one goal this weekend
WANGARATTA locals have been urged to behave responsibly on the roads during the AFL grand final weekend as Wangaratta police target dangerous drivers.
Victoria Police launched Operation Scoreboard yesterday, which will run statewide from Thursday to Sunday.
There will be increased police presence across Victoria, with a focus on drink and drug driving, speed, fatigue, distraction offences and seatbelt compliance.
VICTORIA State Emergency Service (VICSES) volunteers will conduct Driver Reviver sites on the Hume Freeway at Balmattum rest area over the AFL Grand Final long weekend to help motorists reach their destinations safely.
Fatigue is a major killer on our roads and Driver Reviver sites offer a place for motorists to take a break and enjoy a free cuppa and a snack.
VICSES Euroa unit will operate at the North Bound rest area today from noon until 7pm and Friday, September 29 from 9am to 1pm.
