Maybe nothing new, but was front page news in the pakenham leader. http://pakenham-cardinia-leader.whereilive.com.au/news/story/blitz-on-bad-bike-habits-in-cardinia/ "Operation Upright will focus on the Gembrook-Cockatoo area and include extensive patrols, Friday to Sundays, 9am to 7pm, in a bid to cut motorcycle accidents in the area this summer. >>HAVE YOUR SAY: Have you seen irresponsible motorcycling behaviour in other parts of Cardinia? Tell us below. Acting Sgt Peter Henderson said the operation, financed by TAC, would start on Sunday and be in addition to other surveillance of the hills areas during the summer. “We are looking for those who ride while intoxicated, those who speed and those who are clearly using their vehicles beyond their level of experience,” he said. “The warmer weather puts more motorcyclists on our roads and the riding challenges of the hills seem to attract both the responsible and the irresponsible. “We will be on the job around the clock as usual, but this summer on weekends we will have an additional 10-hours-a-day presence through the daylight hours, thanks to a $33,000 grant from the TAC.” He said the operation also aimed to help less experienced riders better understand safety issues. “We will have advisory leaflets for riders we intercept or who ask for them,” Sgt Henderson said. “The prime aim of this project is to encourage responsible behaviour and to educate those who want to do the right thing. “We will show zero tolerance to those who do not.” While accurate accident figures for last season were not immediately available, he said they were high enough to attract police attention. “There is no doubt in our minds the Cockatoo-Gembrook area needs special attention. It doesn’t matter what we do to make the roads safer here and through the hills, stupidity is always likely to end in tragedy. We will leave no stone unturned to prevent that.” The last fatal motorcycle accident in the area was on the Gembrook-Launching Place Rd, on April 20. A 20-year old lost his life when his bike ran off the road in the late afternoon."
