A POLICE operation to crack down on drink and drug driving over the easter long weekend has seen over 20 people across the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula areas land in hot water.
Police conducted “operation nexus” over Easter, and conducted over 8000 breath tests in that time. 16 drink drivers were detected, and 9 drug drivers were caught. 246 people were pulled up for “various other offences”.
Divisional Superintendent Adrian White said “April has been a tragic month for the area so far, with four people losing their lives on our roads. Five people have now died on our roads in 2019, the same as for the whole of 2018. We are trying to do everything we can to stop people killing themselves and others on our roads, but we need the whole community to get on board with us in this effort.”
