Operation RAID will see more police around the region.November 21, 2012 4:23am
District residents and visitors can expect to see a greater police presence around the region with police taking part in Operation RAID until December 9.
The annual operation aims to remove all impaired drivers from district roads and Heathcote police warn they will breath test as many drivers as possible and be actively on the lookout for traffic offenders.
‘‘The operation is part of the ongoing efforts by Victoria Police to reduce the road toll,’’ Senior Constable Jeff Arandt said.
‘‘We will be out every day conducting breath tests and since the start of Operation RAID on November 16 we’ve already caught one drink driver, who will lose their licence, and an unlicensed driver.”
On Sunday, a 22-year-old male driver from Kilmore was caught allegedly over the legal blood alcohol limit at a random breath test station in High St about noon.
‘‘He will be served with a Section 51 for the immediate cancellation of his licence and received a penalty notice,’’ Sen. Constable Arandt said.
On Monday a 56-year-old Heathcote woman was caught driving without a licence in Hospital St and received a penalty notice.
‘‘We do ask that locals be patient in the main street during Operation RAID as we’re just trying to do our bit to reduce road trauma,’’ Sen. Constable Arandt said.
