77 km/h over the limit at Rosedale

A driver has had to surrender his Volkswagen Golf for impoundment after he was detected driving at 177km/h in a 100km/h zone in Rosedale.

Three children were among the four passengers in the car yesterday afternoon.

Police from Rosedale intercepted the vehicle on the Princes Highway about 3.55pm when it was discovered the man was driving on a learners permit.

The intercept was part of Operation Nexus, a five day high visibility road policing operation over the Easter long weekend.

The state-wide operation has been focusing on country road users, speed, impaired drivers, seatbelts, on and off road motorcycles, fatigue due to long distance travel and driver distraction through mobile technology and navigation devices.

The operation concludes at midnight tonight. Priority areas include traffic corridors that link metropolitan areas to popular holiday destinations including the South Gippsland, Baw Baw and Latrobe police areas.
