POLICE undertook a roadside operation last weekend, devoting more resources to making sure people were behaving on the road.
Operation Nexus took place between 9 April and 13 April.
On 12 April a 33-year-old Clarinda woman was pulled over on the Westall Road extension by Moorabbin Highway Patrol officers. Police say she was driving at 127kmph in an 80 zone in an Audi.
The woman tested positive for methylamphetamine, and was also found to have had a suspended license due to other speeding offences. Her vehicle was impounded and she is expected to be charged.
A police statement said “we aim to reduce the incidence and severity of road trauma across the Easter long weekend by targeting key causes. We will be highly visible and mobile in the community.”
“We anticipate traffic to remain local as people leave their homes for essential needs only. This is a crucial time to be switched on when driving for these essential needs. There is no excuse for drivers to exercise poor behaviour on our roads.
“Our community does not need any additional grief or stress caused through road trauma at this already challenging time.”
