Campaspe Highway Patrol will conduct Operation Regal this long weekend across Campaspe Shire.
Five Highway Patrol units from Melbourne will focus on 100km/h roads, including the Northern and Murray Valley highways, targeting speeding, drink driving, distraction offences and fatigue.
Sergeant Greg Watkins of Campaspe Highway Patrol believes the extensive operation will deter motorists from offending.
‘‘We hope for zero tickets, zero accidents and everyone has a safe and enjoyable weekend,’’ he said.
Sgt Watkins was concerned by the large number of accidents in the region involving animals on roads.
‘‘We need to reinforce the need for concentration at all times, but many city drivers coming up for the long weekend are not aware of the dangers of speeding on country roads.’’
Police will use automatic numberplate recognition and speed detection technology.
