Operation Stay Alert is currently underway across the Southern Highlands.

Over the June long weekend, Police will be targeting speeding, mobile phone, seatbelt and motorcycle/helmet offences, with double demerits also in force up until the end of Monday.

Inspector John Klepczarek from the Hume Police District says plenty of people will be travelling on our roads to get to the ski fields.

165 people have died on the state's roads in 2019, 12 higher than at the same time last year.
