Operation Scoreboard

Victoria Police will be executing their game plan over the grand final long weekend and ask the community to consider theirs as police officers focus on road safety statewide.

The AFL Grand Final public holiday on Friday 27 September provides an opportunity for families to free themselves from their usual commitments and it is anticipated that large numbers of people will use Victorian roads, often driving long distances in unfamiliar driving conditions.

Motorists are requested to stay within the speed limit, don’t drink alcohol or take drugs and drive, leave your mobile phone out of reach, wear your seatbelt/child restraints and make sure you are well rested.

Speed Cameras will be rostered in known high collision locations.

Fatigue is one of the biggest killers on Victorian roads. Drivers are requested to plan their trip, be patient and ensure that you take at least a 15 minutes break at least every two hours and don’t drive if you are tired.

Drivers planning to travel during this period can expect to see an increase in vehicles travelling on our major Freeways and Highways throughout the State
