The results of a targeted traffic operation by Baw Baw Highway Patrol over last weekend’s long weekend were “encouraging.”

Ongoing traffic operations by Baw Baw Highway Patrol appear to be sending a message to drivers that local police will not tolerate traffic and road offences, according to sergeant Andrew Milbourne.

Mr Milbourne said the results of a targeted operation over last weekend’s long weekend were “encouraging.”

He said operations would be ongoing as police continued to strive for a zero road toll.

More than 1600 preliminary blood tests of drivers over the recent long weekend saw only one driver exceeding 0.05.

One driver also returned a positive drug test.
