Take care on our roads

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Co­bram High­way Pa­trol is urg­ing driv­ers to be con­scious of the de­ci­sions they make when on the roads.

Po­lice will be out in force dur­ing the hol­i­day pe­riod to tar­get the five lead­ing causes of death and se­ri­ous in­jury on our roads — speed, im­pair­ment, dis­trac­tion, not wear­ing seat­belts and fa­tigue.

They are also urg­ing res­i­dents to regis­ter ab­sence from their res­i­dence while away dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son.

This in­for­ma­tion could be used to reach you or your emer­gency con­tact if there is an in­ci­dent at your home or to per­form patrols in the area.

Peo­ple can ac­cess this on­line at po­lice.vic.gov.au or forms can be lodged per­son­ally at a local po­lice sta­tion.

Take care: Act­ing Sergeant Bill Dock­ery and Se­nior Con­sta­ble Renee McClure will be out in force on our roads this sum­mer.
