Speeding remains the highest offence in Moorabool, following a state-wide police operation that coincided with the recent AFL Grand Final long weekend.
Operation Scoreboard, which ran from 12.01am Thursday 26 September to 11.59pm Sunday 29 September, saw 34 speeding offences committed in Moorabool, followed by eight unregistered vehicles, three drink drivers, two unlicensed drivers, one mobile phone offence and one disobeying signs/signals.
There were no drug driver, seatbelt, pedestrian or cyclist offences recorded in Moorabool.
Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Stephen Leane said it was disappointing to see so many people make the conscious decision to drink or take drugs and get behind the wheel of a car.
“Everyone wants to have a good time on the footy grand final weekend, but unfortunately due to poor choices some people were either hit with a fine, lost demerits or had their car impounded,” said AC Leane.
At the time of publication, the road toll for Moorabool this year remains at five fatalities.
