Crime Stoppers Victoria is partnering with Victoria Police to remind Victorians not to break the law on the road this ANZAC weekend.
The Remember: the road rules campaign launching today in Swan Hill reminds Victorians of the severe penalties of breaking the law whilst driving a vehicle.
With the road toll already up 65% from this time last year, Detective Senior Sergeant Gerard Clanchy wants to remind the community of the severe risks they take when driving illegally.
“We have already lost 100* lives on Victorian roads and it’s only April,” Gerard Clanchy said.
“There are severe penalties for illegal driving, including death, injury, imprisonment and loss of license.”
Cassandra Hoult from Crime Stoppers Victoria reinstates the community’s involvement in keeping Victorian roads safe.
“We know the role that the community play in dealing with these sorts of crimes.
“Not only do we want to remind the public to remember the road rules this Easter period, we want to invite them to report any information about illegally driving.
“We are a completely confidential service. We don’t want to know who you are, we just want to know what you know.
“Together, we can work towards keeping our roads safe for all road users.”
This campaign also seeks any information regarding two open hit and run cases from 2017.
