Do not leave children in cars
With the hot weather be mindful of what the temperature can reach inside a vehicle.
Leaving children unattended in a car on any day is dangerous, let alone when it’s hot. Even if it is a couple of minutes, that’s all it takes for the inside of the vehicle to reach 50 degrees or more. It could result in serious injury or death. In Victoria, it is against the law to leave children unattended in a car. Parents or carers could face fines or up to six months imprisonment.
Multiple positive drug tests
Multiple drivers have tested positive to drugs over the Christmas and New Year period including a 61 year old Cobram male. Cobram Highway Patrol will continue to target speed and drug/alcohol affected drivers into the New Year.
On January 1, 2018 police searched a New South Wales registered vehicle in Cobram. The female driver was in possession of Methyl-Amphetamine. The drugs were seized by Cobram members and the female will face court in February.
