Police will be targeting behaviours including drink and drug driving, speed, fatigue, mobile phone distractions and people not wearing their seatbelts, with 3 deaths on Victorian roads already in 2020 being attributed to people not wearing seatbelts.

Six fatalities in regional areas occurred over the same period in 2019.
