Raid crackdown

AS part of the ongoing ‘Operation RAID’ and other holiday period traffic operations police are cracking down on motorists who use mobile phones while driving, along with other safety related offences such as people not wearing seatbelts and drink driving.

A number of infringement notices were issued by Maffra police in an operation recently conducted in Johnson St, Maffra.

Police stress that using a mobile phone or hand held navigation device while driving is a major distraction.
