Police have announced they will be mounting a blitz this weekend throughout the south-west to catch motorists who break the law.
Senior Sergeant Shane Keogh, of Warrnambool police, said officers would be joined by 10 units from the state taskforce plus officers from the Northern Grampians to enforce the road laws.
The extra 20 officers will support highway patrols from Warrnambool, Hamilton and Portland.
They will be patrolling the local government areas between Camperdown, Warrnambool, Hamilton and Portland.
Acting Inspector Steve Thompson, of Warrnambool police, said this weekend’s police blitz would pay particular attention to arterial and back roads between the four cities.
Police will be equipped with both portable drug and drink-driving testing equipment and will be targeting drug impairment, drink-driving, speed and driving distraction offences as well as infringements on wearing seatbelts.
All traffic offences will be subject to legal process or an infringement notice.
