MORNINGTON Peninsula Highway Patrol police are gearing up for a big AFL Grand Final long weekend.
They will be taking part in Operation Scoreboard from just after midnight Thursday 23 September to just before midnight Sunday 26 September.
Somerville Highway Patrol Senior Sergeant Phillip Hulley said the long weekend had historically been high risk in terms of road trauma.
He said police would target badly behaved drivers with a major focus on excessive speed and impaired driving.
Police will provide a “highly visible active and mobile presence to reinforce positive driving behaviours and lessen the incidence of road trauma and ensure road user compliance”.
He said motorists would be given either or both a personal breath test and/or drug test.
