Holiday road dangers


EASTER and the school holidays are fast approaching, making this a timely reminder to take care on the roads.

“Obey the road rules and don’t endanger yourself, your passengers or other road users,” Acting Sergeant Julia Starkey, of Rosebud police, said.

On 20 December last year, an 18-year-old Caulfield East man who had held a red-Ps probationary licence for only four months was involved in a single vehicle collision on Browns Road, Rye. His damaged car ended up in trees on the centre median strip. Police estimate the man was travelling at 130kph in a 60kph zone. He has been charged with reckless conduct endangering his two passengers, driving at a dangerous speed and other traffic-related offences, including P-licence conditions offences. He will appear at Dromana Magistrates’ Court, 12 April.
