  1. Buried in the HS report on the fatal in Narre Nth yesterday afternoon ( Wed April 4, 2012 )...

    "Operation Crossroads, launched today, will focus on biker safety.

    Highway patrols are covering high-risk areas across the state and even remote tracks on off-road trail bikes.

    The operation began at midnight (last night) and ends on Monday night.

    Three Victorians were killed on our roads last Easter break but an increase in road deaths this year has the toll at 85 deaths.

    Operation Crossroads Commander Superintendent Neville Taylor warned police would be everywhere.

    "Easter is a high-risk time particularly for motorcycle trauma, with many people using holidays and good weather to get out on the bike," he said.

    "If you are out on the bike this Easter, please, wear the right gear, travel at a safe speed and most importantly - don't take risks."

    Melbourne's roads are also expected to be gridlocked with more than 30,000 extra cars joining the dangerous Easter holiday rush today.

    VicRoads figures show the Thursday before Easter was one of the busiest days on the roads in previous years."

    Ride safe...allow extra time..sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west...you'll be pulled over for your own safety.....
