Sticky end for driver


A MORNINGTON man said he was just trying to get to Western Australia to see his sister who was sick with coronavirus when picked up by members of Somerville Highway Patrol over Easter.

The 63-year-old’s white Daewoo Lanos had some “slight safety issues” police said, pointing to the replacement door made of board held on by sticky tape, 10.30am, Monday 13 April.

The man was issued with a defect notice and his vehicle grounded.

The incident was part of state-wide road policing Operation Nexus which ran Thursday 9-Monday 13 April.
