Many drivers are still going too fast but Warrnambool district police were generally accepting of driver behaviour over the Labour Day long weekend.
Warrnambool police highway patrol unit Sergeant Greg Cressall said Operation Arid was conducted statewide and the Warrnambool divisional statistics were generally pleasing in comparing with similar sized areas.
The Warrnambool police service area covers the Warrnambool, Moyne and Corangamite council areas.
Sergeant Cressall said there were 510 preliminary breath tests with five positive readings recorded.
He said there was only one serious accident, involving a couple going to the Port Fairy Folk Festival.
