Victoria Police’s 23-day drink and drug driving blitz has detected nearly one in 425 drivers breaking the law.

Speaking with Neil Mitchell, Inspector Martin Boorman from Victoria Police said 700,000 drivers had been screened across Victoria as part of Operation RAID, Remove All Impaired Drivers, with almost 1,600 drivers recording a positive reading.

"It's pretty good in terms of volume per offences detected. This really is an indication of how committed we are,” he said.

"There's a lot of people out there that do get the message and do do the right thing. Clearly the ones that don't, we're going to catch."

  • Sadly there have been very few drug tests due to cost.
    When asked how many had been done the Police officer skirted the question and played the 700,000 dead bat. Oops, dropped the ball but Mitchell never worried about it.

    Instead of the State Govt taking $100 per car out of third party rego cost and into general revenue why not divert the funds into drug testing.

    Funny how road saftey is determined by $ not statistics.

    The inoidence of drug use is supposed to be much higher than alcohol yet nothing is being done.
