VICTORIA Police detected 259 drug drivers, 124 drink drivers, and 3610 speeding offenders as part of their roadside operation over the Easter long weekend. Operation Nexus ran from 9 April to 13 April. Police also detected 243 disqualified drivers, 398 unlicensed drivers, 902 unregistered vehicles, 246 mobile phone offences, 354 disobey signs or signals, and 162 seatbelt offences Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Libby Murphy said “we take comfort in the fact no one has died as a result of stupidity on our roads this weekend, but it’s this sort of reckless and selfish behaviour that can lead to a lifetime of grief for others.” “It can take a split second for excessive speed or impairment to eradicate a life,” she said. “We can only hope, while these drivers live with the consequences of having their vehicles temporarily impounded, their licences removed, or their day in court, that they realise this is the far better outcome.”
