Targeting drink and drug drivers

Cross border joint operation success

SAPOL have joined forces with Victoria Police this week, targeting drink and drug drivers during a joint traffic operation.

Mount Gambier Police worked with the Dog Operations Unit and State Traffic Enforcement section, conducting alcohol and drug testing as drivers entered the state.

Two drivers have been reported for driving while impaired by illicit drugs, with a number of drivers issued with expiation notices for vehicle load and safety issues.

The operation was hugely successful and be warned there are plans to hold more cross border joint operations between state police forces in the future at random times and days.
