On the tail of splitting blitz mentioned elsewhere, the Monash is getting targetted for "hooning". Speed at own risk. http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,23997251-2862,00.html Police blitz on Monash Fwy results in seven cars impounded A POLICE blitz on the Monash Fwy overnight has caught seven hoons who had their cars seized. All of the cars were impounded for exceeding the speed limit, including a P-plater nabbed driving at 138kmh in an 80 zone who blew 0.118 during a preliminary breath test. His licence was suspended on the spot. The operation enforced reduced speed limits at worksites between the West Gate Bridge and Glenferrie Road. A total of 23 motorists were booked for speeding and six additional penalty notices were issued, including two for unlicensed driving. Region one traffic Inspector Greg Parr said the aim of the operation is to ensure the safety of construction workers at the side of the freeway. "It's all about drivers acting responsibly while they drive and being mindful of the workers' safety. "The reason the speed limits are reduced is because the areas are work zones, providing safety for the workers. "The speed limit is reduced for a reason and we will be enforcing it," Insp Parr said. Two truck drivers became the first to have their prime movers impounded under anti-hoon laws when they were caught speeding along reduced speed zones on the Monash Freeway last month. The blitz also follows round-the-clock patrols of the new Eastlink tollway, which has netted three hoon drivers.
