Drivers have been praised by The Nationals Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull, following the Easter long weekend, with police reporting good behaviour on local roads.
“It was good to see drivers heed the advice of police going into the Easter break, with no fatalities on the roads locally and a small amount of infringements issued over the four-day period,” Mr Bull said.
“Both East Gippsland and Wellington Highway Patrol units allocated a significant amount of resources on the roads for the break, and reported that driver behaviour was good,” he said.
“It was an excellent outcome for that time period for the amount traffic on the roads.”
However, while praising drivers for their behaviour, Mr Bull said infringement notices were issued for low-level speed offences, while there small number of drink-drivers caught on the roads as part of preliminary breath-testing.
