http://www.vicpolicenews.com.au/more-news/7489-three-month-blitz-operation-eastern.html Police are today launching a three-month road blitz across the Eastern Region following a 33 per cent rise in road deaths from last year. Operation Eastern will see a tough police focus on speed, dangerous driving, mobile phone use, fatigue, unsafe overtaking and drugs and alcohol. As part of the operation, which will run throughout August, September and October every Highway Patrol Unit across the Eastern Region will take part, along with general duties police. They will be joined by Victoria Police’s state-wide resources including Operations Response Unit, Automated Number Plate Recognition Unit and the Road Policing Drug and Alcohol Section. The State Highway Patrol will be heavily supporting the operation with a number of high visibility, intensive Operation Super Ardent blitzes at six high-risk locations. These include the Monash, Yarra Ranges, Benalla, Wangaratta, Bass Coast and East Gippsland police service areas. Guess the Spur and Reefton will be hit again. Any good riding out west?
